Cinar Eslek: Parallel Lands


As an extension to her show "I am Unaware", Parallel Lands focus on the body and space, and their relationship with each other. Cinars starting point is once more her own body. Eslek questions the possibilities of the physical body as a space and uses photography and video as well as the traditional painting to express herself. 

While questioning the relationship between body and space, Cinar Eslek makes a call to the audience. She suggests that the audience should trust/not trust their body just like they trust/not trust their eyes. Could we possibly ignore the ruler ship of the eye? Could the body exist without the eye? Cinar Eslek invites us in to a world of possibilities around these crucial questions.

Parallel Lands waits to be discovered by the audience as a sense experimentation ground.

Cinar eslek graduated from Mimar Sinan University Fine Arts Academy in 2006. She is continuing her graduate degree at Marmara University. She received the honorary award by Istanbul Painting and Sculpture Museum Association at the 25th Akbank Contemporary Artists Exhibit in 2006.
