Derya Akay


Derya Akay is an interdisciplinary artist based in Vancouver, Canada. Their work plays with the tension between preservation and decay, control and chance, trial and error. In embracing the realities of time and the transformation of the organic materials they work with, Akay poeticizes the act of cooking, using it as a metaphor for their studio practice. Akay is represented by Unit 17, Vancouver.
