In her films, sculptures and installations, Nevin Aladağ (b. 1972 in Van, Turkey) works both with traditional materials and techniques and with elements borrowed from pop and youth culture. She is equally at home with manual skills and the digital media. Musical motifs run as a thread through many of her works. Music has the potential of imparting a sense of identity to a community and of overcoming social and cultural limitations at the same time. An important frame of reference for the artist is the metropolis of our time with its vast array of hybrid practices, its ever changing, multi-piece pictures and its power of inclusion.
In LentosAladağ shows a selection of her videos: Session, which was created for the Sharjah Biennial 2013, and the trilogy City Language I – III, conceived as an experimental sound portrait of Istanbul. Nevin Aladağ, b. 1972 in Van, Turkey, lives and works in Berlin.
