About

Gökçen Dilek Acay establishes an innovative dialogue between fine arts, performing arts and media arts in her works. Working by bringing different disciplines together, the artist emphasizes that there is no limit for artistic creation and that the connections between different cultural structures and areas are important. Elements such as movement, sound and body play an indispensable role in the production of the artist. For the artist, whose sound production is also seen in her works with visual intensity, it is important that the sound is in circulation and that she creates her own environment independently. In Acay's works, where the body is objectified and objects are treated as subjects, it is possible to see hidden violence and an apocalyptic world depiction. She employs an unusual variety of media, hair, soap, crochet and mechanical sculptures, through which she creates an environment that interlaces the organic and the inorganic, the animate and the inanimate. In the artist's works, especially human hair is used as a part of the body with its geometric and organic structure.
