Murat Adash

The performance-based practice of German-Turkish artist Murat Adash operates across expanded fields of choreographic inquiry with an architectural concern. Through the medium of movement, Adash creates choreographies in a range of media that seek to investigate how space is occupied, shared and transformed. Adash’s particular interest is to choreograph forms of interactions, through which to explore the ephemeral nature of physical boundaries – particularly regarding the dynamic edges between performers and their audiences and the spaces in which they come together. Recent exhibitions and performances include: Walter and McBean Galleries, San Francisco, 2021; Sakip Sabanci Museum, Istanbul, 2020; Bucharest International Dance Film Festival, 2020; Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London, 2020; Somerset House, London, 2020; Mimosa House, London, 2019; Le Commun, Geneva, 2019; Mumok, Vienna, 2019; Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam, 2019; Barbican, London, 2018; Tanzfabrik – Centre for Contemporary Dance, Berlin, 2018; SALT, Istanbul, 2017; The Hangar, Beirut, 2017; Manifesta 11, Zurich, 2016; Alt Art Space, Istanbul, 2016; Julius Caesar Gallery, Chicago, 2015; EXPO Chicago, 2014; Iceberg Projects, Chicago, 2013; Grimmuseum, Berlin, 2013; Motorenhalle, Dresden, 2013; Kriti Gallery, Varanasi, India, 2013.
