Cemile Sahin



Cemile Sahin (b.1990, Wiesbaden, Germany) is an artist whose practice operates between film, photography, sculpture and literature. Freely deploying different media, without privileging one or the other, her work embodies today’s synchronicity of image- and text-based communications. Integrating images into her books and text in her image-world, Sahin moves with extraordinary agility between words and pictures, between still and moving images, between text as form, sign and symbol. Deliberately elliptical and fragmentary, her works narrative strategies draw on an episodic format of narration established by contemporary TV series and internet videos.
