Ali Kazma (1971, Istanbul, Turkey) is a video artist whose work documents human activity in labor, raising questions about the meaning of economy, production, and social organization. His films capture the precise and particular specializations of a range of professions, performed by people who have developed a fascinating fluency in their task. With sheer and sincere imagery he explores the discourses, techniques and management tactics developed for the body today, focusing on the interventions and strategies that both release the body from its own restrictions and restrict it in order to control it. At Akinci, Kazma will show a number of films, amongst which a selection of work that was exhibited at the Turkish Pavilion during the 55th Venice Biennale, as well as two new films.
