Newsletter no3 / Spring is Here🌱(no not really) : A recap of my spring-summer-autumn 2021 news

Dears friends, family, co-workers,
fellow artists and supporters,

I hope my third newsletter finds you well. You probably wonder why it’s entitled ‘Spring is Here’. The reason is, well, I was supposed to send it during spring 2021. But instead of celebrating the arrival of the new season, I had to face the extent of my inclination for emotional isolation while practically being stuck in Turkey during the pandemic…

Gratefully, borders opened up again, I got to see loved ones; couraged up and finished the major video work I was working on which is currently on view in Geneva! So I’d like to share a recap of my spring-summer-autumn news.
Read the rest and check it out here.

"Innergy/Watery" project (Working Title) recipient of SAHA Sustainability Fund: Covid-19

SAHA – Supporting Contemporary Art from Turkey, called for a new fund to support initiatives in visual arts or artists with an existing production interrupted by Covid-19 pandemic or with new project proposal addressing issues that have arisen due to the pandemic.
My ongoing video installation project “Innergy/Watery” (Working Title) will be completed thanks to this fund.

Mimiko's very first newsletter!

Knowing the difficulty to keep up with the information load on social media and to share relevant news alike, I decided to launch out into creating my very first (probably monthly) newsletter.
You received this because at some point our paths crossed (and we most likely exchanged emails), so I hope it finds you well! And please find below all the exciting things that happened during November.

Included in Imago Mundi Art "Istanbul Codex" collection, jul 2016

My work “self-portrait” included in Imago Mundi Art “Istanbul Codex: Contemporary Artists from Turkey” collection:
“227 works that give a real time snapshot of the art scene in a complex country, suspended between East and West, between Islamization and modernization, between advancement and untamed growth. Creativity, culture and art that can play an important role in enhancing an identity founded on the particularity of Turkey, a country between two worlds. Art that transcends boundaries, breaks rules and restrictions, bypasses all is, as in every Imago Mundi collection, the common thread of this collection that rightly also includes 20 works by Kurdish artists, the largest ethnic group in the country.”
