Gozde ilkin mac val 12 1 grid Gözde Ilkin — MAC VAL, Vitry Le Mac Val présente l’exposition d’une artiste turque, née en 1981, Gözde Ilkin, résultat vibrant de sa résidence à Vitry-sur-Seine... 2 - Bien Critique

The work of Gözde Ilkin is deeply rooted in history and contemporary reality, both internationally and in her own country. This young Turkish artist uses sewing, embroidery, drawing and painting as well as video and sound installations to explore social and political subjects through the distancing medium of familiar, domestic techniques.

Bringing together the personal and the social, the private and the public, she highlights the historical and contemporary forms of power and domination, the relations between culture and nature, and the way humankind destroys and transforms nature.

During her residency at MAC VAL, Gözde Ilkin continued her work on nature, exploring communal gardens and the notions of community and territory.
