Hera Büyüktaşcıyan Biography

Hera Büyüktaşçıyan is a Turkish artist based in Istanbul, her work focusses on the notion of the ‘other’ and concepts of absence and invisibility, identity, memory, space and time. By using metaphors from local myths, historic and iconographic elements, she opens a new narrative scope for the ‘other’. In her recent work she has been questioning the meaning of ‘absence’ within the collective memory and addressing urban transformation, which causes total disappearance, destruction, isolation and otherness within the framework of communities, history, time, space and memory.
