Neslihan Koyuncu

Neslihan Koyuncu lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey. She practices art in a variety of mediums, such as installation, sculpture, drawing, performance and photography. She is mostly interested in storytelling in her artwork and tends to use different mediums together in an installation to strengthen the ambience of the story. Her previous works consist of a potential psychological value of domestic objects together with home and its residents. Her late works are more on outside of home and the dialectic between nature and man-made. She tries to appeal to a wider audience with her artworks, even when they reference to a personal issue.
She exhibited both solo and group shows in Istanbul. Her recent photographic works are exhibited in Istanbul Modern Museum.
Other than her personal works, she collaborates with different artists in an art collective called UZ and with performers in Dadans.
She worked as an art director in Istanbul and London before her artistic career. She is also cofounder of Dugme Film on commercial videography.
