LM100 | :mentalKLINIK

 

:mentalKLINIK is an artist duo from Istanbul, founded in 1998. Yasemin Baydar and Birol Demir established their own space in 2000 in one of the most exciting and up and coming creative cities, Istanbul, to present their artistic and theoretical approach.

:mentalKLINIK’s work focuses on modern habits of consumption and production, transforming anything from our present time into material for their artworks. The artists push the boundaries of interdisciplinary methods, reflecting on contemporary reality through the means of sound, action, object, text and form.

Together the artists dislocate the materials already detached from everyday reality and create a new perspective which is awkward, alien and uncanny within the exhibition space.

:mentalKLINIK have created works for Le Méridien Istanbul Etiler and designed the first ever Illy art collection cup in partnership with Le Méridien. Their key card series can be found in Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
