Nilbar Güreş

Nilbar Güreş

Nilbar Güreş chooses a performative approach for her works, using photography, collage, drawing and video: she places everyday life realities in theatrical settings which deal with cultural identity codes, especially female or queer. The narrative presentation often depicts an exit strategy in a humourous way, without denying the brutal reality. Her work is based on long-term research and cultural observation by employing fieldwork practices; she lives with her protagonists and experiences their environment. The issues at stake always deal with a strong political standpoint and oppressing limitations of life which include sexims, violence and gender inequality.
