Ayşe Erkmen

* 1949 in Istanbul, Turkey
lives in Berlin und Istanbul

Based on the social and physical environment from which they arise , Erkmen’s projects intervene with and transpose an existing structure/situation, often creating ambiguous spaces by intertwining life and art in her works and slightly transposing or re-routing everyday spaces, objects, situations and relationships. Ayşe Erkmen’s site and situation specific interventions refer to socialization models that unfold reality to create a space in which the artwork can only be completed by the viewer/participant. Erkmen’s works have been exhibited in many international exhibitions including the 2nd, 3rd and 13th Istanbul Biennials, the Turkish Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennial, Münster Sculpture Project 1997 and 2017, Shanghai, Berlin, Kwangju, Sharjah and Scape biennials, Manifesta 1 and Folkestone and Echigo Tsumari triennials
