Deniz's residency diary from the WEST BALKAN CALLING, an Artist-in-Residence Exchange Programme in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina (2016), is now online here >>>
Deniz Soezen explores themes of culture, location and language questioning the notion of identity and belonging. Moving image, objects and sound are placed in relation to each other within exhibitions and beyond. The audio-visual elements of her work shift in the shapes of documentary-style recording, anecdotal storytelling in varying languages and lecture-performances and songs.
Deniz Soezen engages with the representation(s) of self and other through the lens of her experience of living in and between different spaces, cultures and languages. She creates and produces work that presents a multiplicity of viewpoints and voices, proposing a more pluralist perspective on being and becoming.
