Intersections Emre HunerAugust 24, 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Art Building Auditorium
Emre Hüner was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1977. He is known for his drawing and animation installations of futuristic, fantastical, layered worlds.
In his highly acclaimed video animation Panoptikon (2005), plants emerge as sensate beings that seem to take over the world. The imagery -- culled from the internet, books, photos, films and more--comments on the relationship of our natural, technological, and political worlds. His aesthetic language expresses this relationship through the juxtaposition of man-made scientific objects and nature.
He has exhibited at the Istanbul Biennial (2007); Manifesta 7 (2008); the New Museum’s Younger than Jesus (2009). He has had residencies at Apex Art (2009), and the Rijksakademie (2010). Emre Huner’s visit is cosponsored by Shangri La and the Parc Hotel.
