Can Altay

DISTRIBUTED

Can Altay’s artwork can be found distributed across key buildings in Waltham Forest. Over twenty large, mirror-ball like sculptures are placed on doors. The works are intended to be touched, used and handled by the local communities that live and work in Waltham Forest.

 

Accompanying the artwork, a series of discursive pamphlets will be published and distributed in July and August. Altay’s temporary residence at the William Morris Gallery during August will consist of workshops and talks discussing and recording reactions to the artwork.

 

Can Altay (b. 1975) is a Turkish artist based in Istanbul. He works between the fields of architecture, art, design and social commentary. Often taking the form of research projects or mixed media installations, his work explores and delineates individuals’ relationships with their urban environments.
