HACER KIROĞLU

Hacer Kıroğlu (b.1985) lives and works in Istanbul.

Hacer Kıroğlu flows through her production. The flow that marks Kıroğlu’s performative art, whether infront of the audience or not, refers to a state of mind that psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi described as devoting oneself to a particular activity with an intensified focus that leads to lose consciousness. 

The state of complete concentration and the patterned sequence of movements lay at the core of her practice. Through constant reiteration of rhytmic movements and consecutive line-drawing on a white page she becomes “one with the pencil”. Kıroğlu’s drawings bewilder the audience by combining the reverse cases: the application of excessive physical power and the outcome as the tranquilizing, hypnotic scenes. 

Similar to well-known author Samuell Beckett’s practice in Unnamable, Kıroğlu relentlessly undo through an act bordering absurdity and creating a post-minimalist work; conceptual yet reduced to one action that goes deeper and inwards. The artist's patterns are the result of a repetition based on focus  rules and aimes to create a rhythm while questioning boundaries and rules. 

Hacer Kıroğlu recieved her BA and MA degrees from the Painting Department of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Marmara University, she continues her study as PhD student in the same department. During her graduate studies, she studied conceptual art at the University of Vienna. Selected group exhibitions include Illegibility (The Pan Tadeusz Museum, Poland, 2016), A Coincidence That Will Never Eliminate A Dice (Pilot, Istanbul, 2016), Performance Memory (Plato Art, Istanbul, 2015), Day Before Tomorrow (Pilot Gallery, Istanbul) (2015), Su İş (Siemens Sanat, Istanbul, 2013), Sculptural Actions (White Box, Munich, 2013), Facing the Artwork (Werkleitz: Center for Media Art, Halle, Germany, 2011).
