Azade Köker Biography

Azade Köker's earlier works are mainly concerned with identity and belonging. The artist proposes hybridity as an inevitable survival mechanism, which is achieved through a subjectivity based on discrepancy, transparency and vulnerability. In her later works, nature is negotiated as a cultural construct. She creates images of nature inhabited by traces of human intervention, which she then deconstructs by a repeating pattern on the surface. Through this layering and reworking of the surface, she disrupts the perfection and legibility of the represented image and comments on the possibilities of paintings.
