[ISEA2011] Artist Statement: Songül Boyraz – Ut (Hanna)

Artist Statement

In many of Songül Boyraz’s works she deals with the human body and its fragmentation. Closely connected with the space created by the medium (video and photography) the concentration on the pars pro toto without any accessories and deception allows her works to tell in detail about the brutality and tragedy inherent in everyday situations.
