Nilbar Güreş

Nilbar Güreş


Nilbar Güreş (b. 1977, Istanbul) received a B.A. in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Marmara University, İstanbul, and an M.A. in Painting & Graphics from the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. Upon recieving her M.A., the artist studied Art and Textile Pedagogy at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
Nilbar Güreş’s practice spans performance, video, sculpture, installation and mixed media collage on fabric. Güreş’s works depart from biography then swirls around to address larger issues. Her intelligence in reading inherent cultural symbols combined with her extensive knowledge and deep appreciation of local crafts enables her to imbue social messages within her oeuvre. Güreş is particularly sound to social injustice, gender roles and cultural identity codes – she researches, documents and finds poetic ways to flout conventions in witty figurations.
