FIELD MEETING: THINKING PERFORMANCE

Zeynep KAYAN (Ankara)

Untitled Original: to (Re)Create “New” from the “Old”

Zeynep Kayan examined the act of photographing and re-photographing– a technique that defines her work– as a process that gave way to infinite possibilities; a continuous transformation and discovery. In (re)creating “new” from “old,” she questioned notions of authenticity and time.

Zeynep Kayan’s photography explores the limitless possibilities of the medium. Through experimentation and chance, the artist articulates a personal vocabulary of mystical desire, existential angst and confluent counter-narratives. She graduated from the Department of Communication and Design at Bilkent University. Kayan opened her solo exhibition in February 2013 at Galeri Zilberman, where she also had a duo show in January 2015. She is one of the co-founders of the independent art space Torun in Ankara, Turkey.  She has participated in many group exhibitions including Uncanny Encounters (Istanbul Modern), and Offside Effect (1st Tbilisi Triennial, Georgia National Museum).
