The drawings and videos of the committed feminist Turkish artist Inci Eviner, approach the subject of women torn between two cultures, East and West by witnessing rapid changes that are transforming our societies. The seductive ambiguity of these images is revealed in the subjects she explores, creating a strange universe, tinted by dreams and nightmares, where the unconscious takes over reality.
