Robert Hawkins & Bora Akinciturk - Ello Govna

The Residence Gallery presents Ello Govna, an intergenerational exhibition of Robert Hawkins and Bora Akinciturk.

The show brings together a survey of painted works displayed in a firing line of disorienting visual narratives.

With a post-2020 National Geographic style feel, Robert and Bora pull references from the natural world, the world wide web and popular media. Despite a 30 year age gap between them, they find synchronicity, effortlessly collaborating in a hellish dreamscape. Sharing a similar sense of humour, wit and impending doom, their storytelling bravado provides for a dreamy, dystopian mash-up of the world at large.
