İnci Eviner

The Artist

İnci Eviner’s work usually takes drawing as a starting point and comprises a large body of multi-layered pieces that range from drawing and video to performative and collaborative practices. Eviner explores the formation of subjectivity in her works that touches on the workings of power and the politics of representation, especially with regards to the female body. The complex set of relations that Eviner forms between video technologies and drawing tradition proposes a different kind of perception.

She has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions worldwide. She has been invited to participate in numerous biennials including the Gwangju Biennial (2018), Liverpool Biennial (2018), Sharjah Biennial (2017), Aichi Triennale (2016), Istanbul Biennial (2013 and 2005), Thessaloniki Biennale (2013), Asian Art Biennial (2013), Busan Biennale (2010), Shanghai Biennale (2008) and la Biennale di Venezia (1997 and 2019). Among the museums where her works have been exhibited are the Drawing Center, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille and Istanbul Museum of Modern Art.

Eviner was the winner of the Sharjah Biennial Prize (2017). She was artist-in-residence at Headlands Center for Art (California, 2017), Rauschenberg Foundation (Florida, 2017), SAM Art Projects (Paris, 2010), Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne (Vitry-sur-Seine, 2009), Cité internationalé des Arts (Paris, 2008) and International Studio & Curatorial Program (New York, 2004-2005).
