Seydi Murat Koç

Seydi was born in 1981 in Akşehir, Turkey. Lives and works in Istanbul.

“The components creating the background in Seydi Murat Koç’s works contain architectural
constructs redesigned as being imbricated or spliced with each other, and urban silhouettes that
depart from the whole with an eclectic projection. In this respect, this newly built architectural
order of the artist holds on to a surreal reality and coincides with the idea of simulation.

Every steel construction rises above the bare earth, whether it has a function within the public
sphere, or it is merely the living space of individuals, it coincides with the physical reality of the
utopia, because of the mass it takes up in the universe. What needs to be investigated here
is that, whether the designs taking place in the urban silhouette are reflections of reality or
spectacles that obfuscate a non-existent reality.”
