MELTEM SARIKAYA

2D

Meltem Sarıkaya (Sivas, 1991) got her Bachelor’s Degree in 2009 at Dokuz Eylül University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Painting Department after graduating from Mersin Nevit Kodallı Fine Arts High School, Painting Department. Meltem talks about her works as: “We live a life with prohibitions from the moment we are born until our death. Eroticism is one of the most prominent freedom for the individual even though it carries restrictions of sexuality. Throughout history and especially in this geography, the feminine has been under the pressure of prohibitions and violence. In the face of this oppression, the most important venture point of the individual is the liberating world of sexuality. I like to point out the walls that the neighborhood, the authority and the system are trying to build through taboos, what they have separated, without forming any new models of oppression."
