Inci Eviner

Exhibition at The Drawing Center, New York

May 29, 2015 – June 28, 2015

The Drawing Centre, 35 Wooster Street, New York, NY 10013


The Drawing Center presents a selection of videos by Turkish artist İnci Eviner, whose work forges a relationship between new-media techniques and traditional Turkish art practices. The repetitive, hypnotically shifting scenes depicted in the artist’s videos address contemporary feminism at the crossroads of the East and West (“the face of the middle-class woman,” as she puts it), while exploring broader historical narratives and notions of the body and performance. Eviner’s complex scenes employ a wide variety of drawing traditions, including engravings, ceramic tile designs, and architectural plans. “For me,” the artist says, “drawing is very lively, very necessary.” “The line is very conceptual…and at the same time very expressive.”

Curated by Brett Littman, Executive Director.
