KIVILCIM S. GÜNGÖRÜN

2D

Photographer Kıvılcım Güngörün (Manisa, 1992) gained her Bachelor’s Degree from Dokuz Eylül University in Photography. In her works, the artist focuses on three elements, street-portrait-nature. These elements are evolved and cut into sections through the use of perspective and the concepts of melancholy and immobility.
Apart from analogue photography, she makes collages via digital tools that express a unique point of view as certain people, situations and actions from her experiences merge. Thanks to her vision and technique, her works demonstrate this era’s corrupted sides.
Up until now, the artist held solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions in which she showcased found objects and pieces reflecting different disciplines in her installations. Currently the artist is working on a photography project focusing on cities; Izmir-Manisa-Istanbul, as well as taking experimental shots and questioning the form of the rock.
