EKIN SU KOC

Ekin Su Koc

Ekin Su Koc was born in 1986, Istanbul, Turkey, currently living and working in Copenhagen.

Ekin studied Fine Art in both Istanbul and Seville and graduated in 2010. Her collage series “Happy at Nowhere” is rooted to Istanbul and growing still in both Copenhagen-Denmark and Berlin-Germany. Her works derive themselves from nature and human psychology, with symbolic elements as old ancient maps, daily magazines, different hair images, laces, flowers and animals, with all fragmented parts becoming a body. She uses traditional motifs and mass culture images from modern magazines to refer to the contrasts and multicultural coexistence. Becoming the life itself and telling the story of traveling through time and land.

Ekin has had several successful solo and group exhibitions in Turkey, Germany, Denmark and most recently the UK.
