An exhibition of photography & sculpture about feminine self-intimacy experiences. Viewing and studying the female body throughout different prisms: sensuality, self-provocation and lightness in a small and intimate layout.
I’m melting in my own fingers – photo series. „I have been photographing on this theme for a long while already. After dozens of images and directions, I ended up dealing with it with humor: A direct and delicious metaphor with lots of personal space around.“ Çiğdem
Mind, Body, Energy – sculpture series. „The pieces I’m presenting are different aspects you can apprehend of the theme: basic, sensual or illustrative; yet the best is the action itself. Therefore it’s not easy to describe it or name the words; It’s the meeting of mind, body and energy.“ Marie
