ABOUT

Born in Istanbul in 1975. Lives and works in Istanbul.

Received B.A. (1999) and M.F.A. (2003) from Painting Department, Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Istanbul. Currently working on the P.H.D. thesis at the same university.

 

Being an artist who have  always worked with human issues, she continues to deal with urban life and effects on the citizen; who has now great access to all the facilities to live a good life, yet insufficient to communicate with each other. The identity, social roles, awareness and being a woman in this society are the subject matters to appear in her works.

 

Her production includes painting, printmaking, photography and mixed media.

In her words: "Quotidian tragedies, roles that have been put on, and masks to hide behind. Bizarre complications of daily life, and their effects.. Through my works, I try to visualize the path of today’s individual as he/she becomes reactionless, emotionless, solitary and almost devoid of memory while trying to perform the role of the “ideal metropolitan subject” in a city life with constantly changing agendas. While criticizing how fast-food news and soap opera lives leave more traces in the mind of the individual than real tragedies, I seek to present the audience with the state of this individual -living a life of visual and emotional trash-, who investigates “the other” under a mask of indifference, without looking them in the eye. I seek to point at the masks of status and power oriented apathetic crowds, of those who, according to Bauman, experience “false encounters”.My work, which explores the reality and sincerity of the metropolitan subject -who despite all kinds of disasters, manages to stay indifferently happy but also lives in deep depression brought on by the tiniest of troubles, will be continued to be seen in the upcoming series as well."
