Inci Eviner (b. 1956, Turkey) lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey. Ranging from drawings and video to performative and collaborative practices, Eviner’s large body of work comprises multi-layered pieces that originate from drawings. Her work explores the politics of desire, space, subjectivity, and their potentiality. As an artist mindful of the traumas that we experience in our everyday lives, she demands new approaches to seeing and listening. Eviner was awarded the 13th Sharjah Biennial Art Prize in 2017.

She has been invited to participate in numerous biennials including Istanbul, Venice, Taiwan, Thessaloniki, Shanghai, Busan, Aichi and Sharjah. Museum exhibitions include The Drawing Center, New York, USA (2015); Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, USA (2012); Philadelphia Museum of Art, USA (2011); Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, Vienna, Austria (2010); Musée d’art moderne de la ville de Paris, France (2011); and Palais des Beaux-Arts, Lille, France (2009).
