Berkay Tuncay’s practice is based on investigating the effects of the internet on society and the human psyche. He examines the intersection points of internet culture, archaeology, psychology, and language. He transforms images, texts, and memes that are circulating online into offline prints, videos, poetry books, and installations. He has taken part in numerous international group exhibitions and presented his works on online culture in diverse forms. His selected solo exhibitions include: ˏˋ°•*⁀➷ [Fancy Text], KUUB.Space, Utrecht (2024); Human, how strange, so vulgar, such a masterpiece and yet so primitive, Sanatorium, Istanbul (2020); Getting Away With It All Messed Up, Display, Berlin (2018); Life Is What Happens To You While You Are Busy Watching Cute Cat Videos, Gaia Gallery, Istanbul (2016); and I’M SORRY, BECAUSE I DANCE, De Kijkdoos, Amsterdam (2011).
