Leman Sevda Darıcıoğluie

Leman Sevda Darıcıoğlu (Berlin & Istanbul) is an artist working mostly in the field of performance art. Darıcıoğlu mainly makes long-lasting live performances, but also videos, installations and public interventions. In the performances, Darıcıoğlu examines the physical/emotional limits, limitations and potential of the body. Departing from this corporeal approach, Darıcıoğlu is interested in chronopolitics and necropolitics from a perspective that focuses on the vulnerability and strength of marginalized bodies. Working on queer appropriation methods of the past and present from a non-Western perspective, Darıcıoğlu develops corporeal strategies to address the history of minority groups excluded from hegemonic history.
