Born in 1981 in Bergama, Turkey, Deniz lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey. Deniz’s concept-driven works investigate the intersections and points of entanglement between economics and nature. She focuses on the human-nature relationship, the idea of nature throughout history, and ecological concerns. The central concepts in her practice are the capitalism-led deterioration of nature, and our perception of it, as well as the related consumerist culture. She questions how the economic system continuously reshapes our perception through subtle but consistent manipulations. She sheds light on the illusional distribution of value; she is interested in loss, extinctions, and geo-history. She consults a wide range of media, including installation, sculpture, video, drawing, and writings.
