Rooted in conceptualism, Erdem Taşdelen’s practice involves a range of media including installation, video, sculpture, sound and artist books. His diverse projects bring structures of power into question within the context of culturally learned behaviours, where he often draws from unique historical narratives to address the complexities of current sociopolitical issues. Taşdelen’s exhibitions include Mercer Union (Toronto) (forthcoming); Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver); Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen; VOX Centre de l’image contemporaine (Montreal); Pera Museum (Istanbul); Museum für Neue Kunst (Freiburg); Stacion CCA (Kosovo); Kunstverein Hannover; Haus Konstruktiv (Zurich); and MAK (Vienna). He has been awarded the Joseph S. Stauffer Prize by the Canada Council for the Arts (2016); the Charles Pachter Prize by the Hnatyshyn Foundation (2014) and was longlisted for the Sobey Art Award in 2019.
