everything out of noting, a brief history of thoughts...

Oğuz Savan is an İllustrator, designer and artist who works and lives between Münster, Berlin and İsanbul creates interwined forms and concepts in face of finding new perspective on reality. to do it he mixes the mediums and forms  from photograph pieces to formed sculptures, from ready made objects to animated drawings of him. he aim to fine interdimentions between the mediums to comprehend the substances in where we find ourselves, what the universe made of. As content and focus of his works associate with the  purposfullnes or so called teleological perspective of humankind. what makes the humanity being omnipotent to solve the nature and regenerate the reality with understandable structures out of nothing but at the same time ironically as a trap to fall in or drives people to stuck in a fictional realities, better to say a feeling, as if everything should happen and mean something or in sense of moral order. His works are aimed to show that some could be opposite of themselves when they were looking like easily approachable. his approach is to show: deciding what the thing are, could be irrelevant. judging what the things are, can be so slippery if we don't try to give a time to understand and accept them as they. in order to experience it he is occupied with different materials and methods by the working and thinking process by using the character of the materials he is trying out to find out connections where they come from and what is the relationships they have each other by building the bridges between them in his collages, sculptures, assemblages and animated video works works.
