We are proud to announce that Galerist now represents Nilbar Güreş.
Nilbar Güreş (b. 1977, Istanbul) received a B.A. in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Marmara University, İstanbul, and an M.A. in Painting & Graphics from the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. Güreş’s practice spans performance, video, sculpture, installation and mixed media collage on fabric. Güreş’s works depart from biography then swirls around to address larger issues. Her intelligence in reading inherent cultural symbols combined with her extensive knowledge and deep appreciation of local crafts enables her to imbue social messages within her oeuvre. Güreş is particularly sound to social injustice, gender roles and cultural identity codes – she researches, documents and finds poetic ways to flout conventions in witty figurations. Nilbar Güreş lives and works in Vienna and Istanbul.
