Cigdem Aydemir is a Sydney-based artist working in the mediums of installation, performance and video art. Her socially and politically engaged art practice investigates possibilities for intersubjective and transcultural communication, with an interest in post-colonial and feminist issues.

 

Much of her work expands on the veil as a culturally constructed sit and as material realisation, while exploring the veiled woman cipher as the resistant female other, and as lived experience.

 

Through critiquing, de-colonizing and queering mechanisms, Cigdem questions established relations of power, while producing work that is driven equally by research, play, criticism and humour.
