A new installation by the İnci Eviner will be presented at the Pavilion of Turkey at the 58th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, in 2019. Curated by Zeynep Öz, the presentation will take place at a dedicated location at the Arsenale.
İnci Eviner’s work usually takes drawing as a starting point and comprises a large body of multi-layered pieces that range from paintings and video to performative and collaborative practices. Eviner explores the formation of subjectivity, and her work touches on the workings of power and the politics of representation, especially with regards to the female body. The complex set of relations that Eviner forms between video technologies and painting tradition proposes a different kind of perception.

In her video installation, commissioned by the Sharjah Biennial 2017, Eviner carves out an alternative world, in which painters and poets are beginning to craft a recalibration of the visual and the verbal.
