Emre Huner’s drawings, videos, and spatial works consider “the concept of society at risk” in the natural and built environment. Interplanetary objects that resemble craters or geological forms are juxtaposed against man-made items like sheetrock or cardboard in his installations, considering man’s connection to his surroundings. The found films and photographs he utilizes, pulled from both before and after the Cold War, also consider the failures of modernity. Huner’s drawings often include dark skies, deserted landscapes, and wayward intentions relating to economic development. NASA, space exploration, nuclear technology, and aviation are common subjects, tracking ideological shifts in technology and the transforming expectation of technology. His more recent work considers the ways in which nature’s dissonance continues to spur new life by avoiding stasis. Huner’s practice considers how form and design gauge societal progress.


The artist has been exhibited at institutions including Mori Museum of Art, Tokyo, Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Salt Lake City, San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, California, Stroom Den Haag, the Hague, MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art, Vienna, Museum of Art and Design, New York, Istanbul Modern, Turkey, CCA Warsaw, Poland, and Haus der Kunst, Munich. He participated in the Moscow Young Art Biennale and Manifesta 9 in 2012, the Busan Biennial in 2010, and The Generational: Younger than Jesus at the New Museum in 2009. Huner has held residencies at Apexart in New York, Rijksakademie Van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, and Princeton University, among others.
