Archival Pigment Print on Silver Paper mounted to plexiglass This image is part of Gravity series which is an inquiry into the fragility of human existence on the planet and the forces of gravity which attach us to earth but also keep us from flying high. This duality can be seen as a major existential problem of mankind: Banalities of daily life and city is designed to hide this duality from us but deep down I feel the gravity is about death. We all know that one day gravity will prevail but denial is much more comforting. These works try to provoke us to get back to this duality by using large scale and compositions, by filling the frame with emptiness and computer generated content. The image is printed on silver paper and mounted to plexiglass Keywords: people, photography, digital, abstract, gravity, manipulation, minimalism Keywords: people, photography, city, abstract, gravity, manipulation, modern

Born on 1972 in Istanbul, he graduated from Saint Joseph French College in 1991 and attended Marmara University Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Film TV. He won 14 National and International awards with his short films between 1992 and 2002. “Simulacra” (2001) was awarded the “Special Mention” at 24th Clermont Ferrand Short Film Festival’s Digital Competition in 2002. Canikligil has worked as a professional editor, assistant director and finally director in TV commercials. He also has contributed in numerous short films as DOP, editor and attended as member of jury in many national competitions, conducted workshops on short filmmaking and has written essays on the field. In all the while, he constantly and obsessively created photographic images and still does. His works are part of many private collections in Istanbul and New York Following is from Artsy web site: “Photographer and multimedia artist Ilker Canikligil creates partially imagined, digitally manipulated images of cityscapes and the masses. “I want my photographs to look like ‘captured moments’ from ordinary life,” he says, “and I start from reality choosing arbitrary, ordinary moments and situations, yet manipulate those images during the process by adding or removing things in order to reach a certain clarity and essence.” His work emphasizes repetition, ellipsis, hyperrealism, and the minimalist geometries latent in the architecture of the urban environment. Canikligil claims that his work is a part of a project to move beyond “taking” photographs and towards “making” them—an expressive process in which the artist is given greater control over the creation of the image.”
