Ergin Çavusoglu

(Bulgaria, 1968)

Ergin studied fine arts at The National School of Fine Arts Iliya Petrov, Sofia, in the early 1980s. He consequently received a BA in mural painting from the University of Marmara, Istanbul, and an MA from Goldsmiths, London, where he now lives and works. Central to his practice are concepts and themes that probe the notion of place, explored in his multiple channel video and sound installations. Many of his works centre on ideas of ephemerality, rhythm, transience and mobility. He represented Turkey at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003 and received widespread public attention in 2004 when he was short-listed for the Beck’s Futures Prize. Recent exhibitions include Place after Place, Kunstverein Freiburg; Quintet Without Borders, Best of Discovery, ShContemporary, Shanghai; Haunch of Venison, Zurich; Point of Departure, John Hansard Gallery, Southampton; NGCA Sunderland, All Inclusive – A Tourist World, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; Entanglement, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Dundee; the 8th Istanbul Biennial; Brit ish Art Show 6 and the 3rd Berlin Biennial.
