Mimiko is an artist based in Istanbul who mostly produces videos, photography series, artist’s books and textual and performative works, focusing on connecting to/through the body and transcending the body.

The first decade of her practice focused on gender roles and socially constructed identities through a subjective documentary approach. For the past five years she has been working towards exploring the expression of the inner flow — ‘innergy’, an amalgam of inner and energy — in human bodies and water-bodies.

By conducting a primarily visual and bodily experience-based artistic research and drawing connections between constructed binaries and dichotomies, she questions global narratives about gender roles, identities and more recently about climate and ocean emergencies with a multidisciplinary approach, aiming for creating a disturbance of predisposed personal and social structures.
