Sergen ŞEHITOĞLU

 
 

Né en 1980, le photographe turc Sergen Şehitoğlu partage sa vision d'une humanité à la fois enfermée dans des carcans mais également parfaitement maîtresse de sa destinée. Que l'artiste aborde des souvenirs, notamment de son adolescence, ou qu'il évoque sa propre vie quotidienne, il définit un homme imprégné de doutes face aux changements de la société, celle de l'industrialisation massive mais aussi celle de la dépersonnalisation liée à ce nouveau monde 2.0. Ce travail introspectif le met souvent en scène et présente également une personnification des constatations du photographe à travers par exemple une jeune femme qui propose une nouvelle approche de l'intime dans les réseaux sociauxou encore un être non-identifiable dans une vue vertigineuse de son bureau, sorte de mise en abyme de l'insignifiance d'une existence. 

Born in 1980, Turkish photographer Sergen Şehitoğlu shares his vision of a humanity stuck in its own fetters but also totally in charge of itself. Whether the artist broaches memories, notably the ones from his adolescence, or he evokes his own everyday situation, he defines a man full of doubts when it's time to face the social evolutions, the one from massive industrialization as well as the one from this new 2.0 world's depersonalization. Within this introspective research, the artist often presents himself and also suggests a personification of the photographer's observations, for example through a young woman which proposes a new approach of privacy in social media, or through an unidentifiable being in a vertiginous view of his office, sort of a droste effect of the meaninglessness of life.
