Asli Sungu (Turkey/Germany) spans in her practice from video to paint installations. Her work focuses on private stories, which are often humorous or idiosyncratic but the resonance is something we can all identify with. Whether she is looking at her family rituals or simple tasks like chopping carrots she explores daily themes that highlight much larger power structures and meanings.

Born in 1975 in Turkey, Asli has exhibited her work internationally, including 401 Contemporary (Berlin), Witte de With (Rotterdam) and Platform Garanti (Istanbul). She currently lives and works in Berlin.

Asli’s residency was supported by the Goethe Institut, as part of Journeys with No Return.
