Zeynep Kayan

Ankara, TR

Inserting herself into the physical performances often found in her work, Zeynep Kayan’s (b.1986, Ankara) practice reflects a set of experiments that question the idea of self and the human condition. And because Kayan regularly takes her own body as the subject matter, she becomes the literal and metaphorical centre of the process. The results materialise across a multitude of mediums – from photographs of repeated actions to sound pieces and videos that document her inquiries – each playing equally important roles in conveying Kayan’s thoughts, which are constantly evaluated and reconsidered until a greater understanding is gained.
