Evrim
Kavcar

Evrim Kavcar is a visual artist who is interested in fragile and uncanny encounters of daily life. Artistic explorations of such moments unravel narratives that vary between the unseen, and the obvious; the personal and the social; the poetic and the politic. Through works made up of site specific projects, sculptures, performances, animations and drawings, Evrim Kavcar continues to work with issues of memory and transformation. “Discovering forms of relating” defines her artistic practice. Graduated from the sculpture department of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in 2000, Kavcar received her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute (2003) on a Fulbright scholarship, and PhD from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University (2011). She studied Foto-Film and animation at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (2010-2011). Selected exhibitions include: Shifting Patterns, Kunstverein Tiergarten, Berlin, 2021; The Fine Knife We Used To Pare Away The Rough Day, Kasa Gallery, İstanbul, 2020;  Dictionary of Sensitive Sounds, PASAJ, İstanbul, 2019; SiS Collective, Apartment Project, Berlin, 2016; D as In Void, Gallery Zilberman, İstanbul, 2015; 3rd Mardin Biennial, Mardin, 2015; 5.International Sinop Biennial, 2014.
