Ayça Telgeren (b. 1975, Gölcük) focuses on sentiments, potentials, in betweens and the emotions that is intuitively known and collectively felt, yet cannot be defined. The artist – starting with what is personal to her, her own archeology – tries to reach a pool of collective memory. Within the process, she defines herself more as an explorer rather than a constructor or an observer. The artist is widely known for her hand-cut works that she adopts as a natural form of expression. However Telgeren’s works demonstratea wide variety of materials and techniques that shape according to the needs of her current subject matter, ranging from metal, gas concrete, concrete sculptures, to video and peinture.
Telgeren completed her BA and MA in Painting at Mimar Sinan Faculty of Fine Arts. Having participated in numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally, she has also been a part of HAH artist collective since 2017.
The artist currently lives and works in Istanbul.
