ELMAS DENİZ

Elmas Deniz is a concept-driven visual artist. She works with ideas rather than a specific medium; her media include installations, ready-made objects, video, sculptures, drawings, text as well as exhibition-making and art writing. She chooses the most convincing medium, tool and even methodology relevant to her initial idea.

At times, she avoids the form-content interplay while sometimes this interplay becomes the backbone of her work. Her presence in the work might be strong or completely amiss. She produces in relation to history and enjoys making literary research about the subject matter through a deliberate critical and subjective approach. However, the final work dilutes this background of research to produce a visually grounded work.


The subjects that she is interested in at the moment are economy and nature within the city context defined by global neoliberal capitalism. She is interested in more specific delicate contradictions, logical fallacies, representational issues regarding those issues. She focuses on poverty, value system, urban transformation, consumerism, power structures, misrepresentations through an anti-systemic subjective perspective.


Most of her works, deals with similar notions/ideas/concepts that branches out in different directions. She looks for a specific semantics in her works without being overly conscious. It allows her a “base” from which she can develop or rather link/build new thoughts. In the time being, it becomes a body of work, a series that is scattered into single pieces of artworks.
