Ekin Su Koc

Ekin Su Koc was born in 1986 in Istanbul, Turkey, and currently lives and works in Copenhagen. She holds a BA from Mimar Sinan Fine Art University, an MA in Painting from the University of Sevilla and an MFA from Isik University. 


Ekin’s collage series “Happy at Nowhere” is rooted in her experience in Istanbul and in her memories growing in both Copenhagen-Denmark and Berlin-Germany. Her works derive 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 multicultural contrasts and coexistence which make up life in order to narrate the story of travelling through time and land.


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