UNTITLED

With her genetic engineering in her memory, she shows her photographs, which she edited with plant, animal and human formsand which depict the situations that lead to the pursuit of perfection. They situations are based on the ideal life shaped by the sense of identity and belonging, to her viewers. She creates a brand-new universe manipulating the viewers’ sense of “reality” through the objects, space, states and characters she uses. She provides chances to a new possibility through subjects such as; pieces of meat in frames, crosses made of candies, giantlobsters, perfect skins, android and cold characters avoiding eye contact, genes, cloning and memory.
