Özlem Sariyildiz

My works construct an intimate relation between politics and aesthetics and communicate with my audience through the direct beauty of the un-catastrophic world amongst the ruins of the ongoing life as it is. Having been engaged in a wide variety of subjects ranging from memory, gender, commons, music and differing social movements; I use audio-visual materials as the main research and expression tool, where the subject matter and time determine the form. My works research the possibilities hidden in the images, their power to create ideas, the capability of the montage to help us shout out, and the multiplicities created through sound. 

Holding a BA in industrial design and an MS in media and cultural studies, I constantly seek ways of learning from the experince(d) and practices of others through listening and sharing stories.
