Kardelen Fincancı / Independent Artist
Kardelen Fincancı either uses action as an art method or uses art as an action method. She produces her art works by never differentiating any discipline from other, and she produces them sometimes in an interdisciplinary way and sometimes with only one discipline, according to her imagination. Her only objective is to show the facts to the people that they have never been aware or rather decided not to be aware. That is why her gallery and her stage is the street. She presents her works at the street as much as her art works let. Because the street belongs to noone and also the street belongs to everyone. Only for a minute the street builds a relation with the people who were passing by and when the people are gone, the street loses its context. But after a while with a new person it builds a new relation again. That is to say, the street is collective.
If you come to Istanbul one day, the possible places that i can show you are;
Galataperform; the place locates at Beyoğlu, Galata, which is a very crowded and noisy place. Galataperform is a mostly a place for performing arts. I have done some performances at this place, such as "tell me miror, miror" in their visibility project also.
KargART; the place locates at Kadikoy, which is at the asian side of Istanbul. KargART is the part of the Bar Karga (Crow). They all are in the same building, therefore the place that you can also drink and see some art. =)
KargART is different than known galleries. Mostly independent artists works can be seen in this place.
