Can Pekdemir was born in 1982 in Istanbul. After working as an instructor in the Department of Visual Communication Design at Istanbul Bilgi University (2006-2012), he now continues his lectures part time at Bahçeşehir University.
In his works, he mainly utilizes the method of deformation and reconstruction by taking into consideration the effects of gravity, heat and environment on the body, organs, skeletal and muscular systems, and the resulting changes.
Pekdemir’s exhibition titled “Above The Clavicle: Works on Bodily Forms I” focuses on the deformations on the head and the neck. The artist emphasizes not only the physical change but also the emotional change as a result of several factors.
