Artist Statement

 

 

Sumru Tekin is a multidisciplinary artist whose work is engaged with the relationship of language and image to the construction of identity. Specifically interested in notions of originality and the copy, she re-contextualizes found and constructed drawings, texts, and photographs, creating inconclusive narratives within the contexts of historiography, memoir, and story telling.
