Nezaket Ekici (Turkey/Germany)

Nezaket Ekici
b.1970 Kirsehir, Turkey

Nezaket Ekici has lived in Germany since 1973. She is an artist with roots in two cultures and lives and works in Berlin. She completed her Master in Art history and Art pedagogy in 2000 and went to study with Marina Abramovic at the HBK Braunschweig.
She had worked with international artists like Ilya Kabakov and Tania Bruguera and has been presenting her work in international exhibitions since 2000. Nezaket Ekici uses social and cultural every day life experiences in her work. That context is absorbed to create a performance that uses the body as symbol, in interaction with technology and the audience. In her performances Ekici places the most ordinary everyday kind of experience into a new context which invites the audience to make new associations. Seemingly@commonplace elements are juxtaposed together to form a whole new experience as a work of art (Gesamtkunstwerk.)
