Nazli Moripek

Nazli Moripek (born 1989 in Istanbul, Turkey) is a visual artist who studied Fine Arts at the Yıldız Technical University in Istanbul and the University of Art and Design in Offenbach am Main. In her artistic practice, Nazli Moripek explores with different media, expressions of recurring memories and their temporal impact. In her paintings, she uses digital techniques to create disturbances and shades of green that symbolize the intersection of the natural and digital worlds. The brushstrokes in her artworks are intentionally blurred and also capture the transience and loss of both material and immaterial matters. Through the medium of installation and using collage techniques, she creates visual worlds that depict the intertwined and complex layers of diasporic formations, migratory flows, the intersection of cultures, hybrid identities, geopolitical borders, and regional territorial identities. She was awarded the DAAD Fellowship in 2019 and the Hessian Graduate Fellowship (HAB) in 2022. Since 2011, her artistic works have been shown in national and international exhibitions.
