Baha Görkem Yalım is a visual artist. Yalım’s exploration, not only of contents, but also of the use of artistic media, is in a constant flux - refusing to crystallise in a particular form. Yalım employs video, installation and performance sometimes in variations and sometimes as folds of the same. His practice at times crosses the borders of a writer, teacher and curator. He is currently living in Amsterdam. SELECTED EXHIBITIONS / SCREENINGS "In Support" I 'Support structures' I de Kijkdoos / Amsterdam / August 2017.
