Mehmet Ali Boran performs an artistic production with materials and media such as video, photography, installation, performance and video-novel. In his first-period works displaying narratives on the crowds, the artist presented the physical/psychological reflexes of masses across the government with an effective visual way as part of the issues like identity and belonging. Later on his artistic production, Boran focused on the problems of militarism, immigration and memory. He began to explore the ecological narratives and he examined closely the positioning format of the new era security system in the place where he lived. In his works Mehmet Ali Boran criticized the discourse of security community created by the control and surveillance mechanisms of the government on territarial borders, city/country settlements and topographic areas. He proposes the whole perusal of the existent instead of the human-oriented perusal of the place, history and memory. Also he develops a jeontological point of view to animal, watercourse, soil, rock, air, plants and cultural relics. Moreover Boran offers a different perspective agaist the people who bring themselves into existence taking inspiration from geographical sciences. In his works with a metonomic perspective, he shows that what happens in local areas is not independent from the gobal dimensions. He attended several exhibitions both national and international. His works were exhibited in London, Helsinki, Paris, Stuttgart and Venice. Also the artist is one of the founders of Mişar Art Contemporaryaet talks.
