GÖZDE MİMİKO TÜRKKAN

Gözde ‘Mimiko’ Türkkan (b.1984) lives and works in Istanbul.
 
Mimiko mostly produces photography series, artist’s books and videos. Through a subjective documentary approach, her works focus on gender roles and socially constructed identities while attempting to shed light to some of the deepest drives, desires and fears of the human being; aim to raise questions about gender stereotypes, prejudgements, social roles, power relations and how these are manipulated. Mimiko also emphasises the human body as the most common outward manifestation of the sexual, psychological, emotional and sociological identity. 
 
After receiving her BA degree in 2008, Mimiko worked as a photography course instructor in the Visual Communication Design Department of the same university. She completed her education in the University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design where she received her MA Fine Art degree in 2010.
