Born in 1985, lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey
Fatma Belkis’s installations and films are created in collaboration with artists and researchers close to the artist. Her works attempt to analyse the tensions between the collective and individuality, between emancipation and attachment. They question the weight of history and culture on the potential construction of an identity and political commitment, the possibility of freedom in a world of constant, vital interdependence.
During her residency, Fatma Belkis made a talk for the students at the Art School of Clermont-Métropole.
