Ayşe Erkmen

° 1949, Istanbul (TR) – lives and works in Istanbul (TR) and Berlin (DE)

During the past 20 years Ayşe Erkmen gained recognition for her extensive and site-specific works. Her practice is characterized by visual clarity and a sensitivity towards the conditions at hand. Formally, her practice often comments on minimalism’s relationship between industrial forms and the body The artist employs color, form and sound to question and emphasize perception and experience. In her installations Erkmen frequently responds to a given context in a social, architectural or political manner.
