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 and potentiality of desire, space and subjectivity. As an artist mindful of the traumas that we experience in our everyday lives, she demands new approaches to seeing and listening.

Reenactment of Heaven, Inci Eviner’s newly commissioned film which can be found in St George’s Hall, reflects on ideas of heaven, religion and authority. Eviner specifically addresses the place of women in heaven, rejecting the role consigned to women in societies dominated by the male gaze. She also explores the rhetoric connected to religion and powerful authorities. For her film, Eviner collaborated with a female singer and performer, presenting women as self-determined and active. Based on drawings and a multi-layered choreography, the film blurs the borders between reality and fiction, using masks, stage design and symbolic props.

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, USA (2012); Philadelphia Museum of Art, USA (2011); Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, Vienna, Austria (2010); and Palais des Beaux-Arts, Lille, France (2009).
