Aslı Dinç (1985, Istanbul);
Aslı studied Painting at Marmara University, Istanbul. She continues her MA studies at Yıldız Technical University, Art and Design Program.
A large part of her oeuvre consists of videos, performances, installations and site-specific works.
She is an interdisciplinary artist focusing on concepts such as future-archaeology, dystopian aesthetic and psychogeography. These concepts can create changes or gaps in habits of thinking and in time perception, as in the concept of space-time.
Her research and artistic practice is related to observation, visualization, simulation or adaptation of these thinking practices
into an alternative reality.
Therefore, “Archaeology” and ”Dystopia” are the concepts that are frequently seen in her works.
Rather than thinking about the flow of time in a linear and single direction, she prefers taking actions intuitively to give a chance to probabilities that can open up new doors of perception.
Aslı has exhibited her multimedia installations and collective performance works in
Turkey and abroad such as Mexico, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Colombia, Hong Kong.
