Emre Hüner

August 11 - August 30, 2011

Born in Istanbul, Turkey, Emre Hüner was a visual Artist-in-Residence at Shangri La in partnership with the Art and Art History Department at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. Hüner works across a wide range of media, including drawing, painting, video, photography, animation and site-specific installations. He weaves together imagery drawn from diverse sources, including found films and photographs as well as archival material, to create narratives that explore man's relationship to the natural and built environment, the history of technology and theories of modernity. Hüner has exhibited internationally and his works were included in the New Museum's exhibition Younger than Jesus in 2008 and in Princeton's Nobody's Property: Land, Space, Territory, 2000-2010. He was selected as Princeton's first Elson artist-in-residence in 2010 and has been based at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. During his residency at Shangri La he developed ideas for a new body of work and conducted studio visits with graduate students from the University of Hawai’i. Hüner presented a free public lecture on his work at the University of Hawai’i Art Auditorium on August 24, 2011.
