Ezgi Yakın's work is based on references made up of fragments, traces and remains of architectural structures and everyday objects associated with the environment and urban experience. In her painting, photography and installation practice, she is concerned with the visual and intellectual possibilities of what is incompatible with the structural order in everyday life. While examining the whole-part, static-variable and function-dysfunction relationships, the dynamics approach between formal elements that fix and support the fluid elements come to surface. Yakın transforms the visual aesthetics that emerged with the effects of time in the construction of place and space, designed with an intellectual and political perspective, with an alternative view that supports the imagination.
