Neslİhan Başer

…, to Neslihan, the act of embroidering is like a mantra repeating to organize individual stories by piercing a surface and arriving on the other side, and then coming back to the initial without the trouble to represent here and there, there and back, death and rebirth.

There is a refreshing space in Neslihan’s works, created upon long investigations and deep reckoning reigns. The tranquil, and the adequately long decision processes trigger the moments of balance that distinguish them. Hearing the healing voice, coming from the past and transferred to the viewers by the artist, only becomes possible by putting away the ingenuity of the figural perception, and covering a distance away from the concept of time.
