The International Studio & Curatorial Program

SAHA supports an artist from Turkey who is invited to the residency program at ISCP in New York every year. This year, between October 1 and December 31, 2018, İnci Furni is invited to participate at the residency program.  ISCP is a leading nonprofit, residency-based contemporary art institution for emerging to mid-career artists and curators from around the world, including the United States. With 30+ artists and curators in residence at all times, the program provides residents with the space, time, and support to develop new projects. With additional activities tailored for professional development and public engagement, ISCP serves as an important platform for producing, presenting and contextualizing contemporary art through a diverse range of international perspectives. ISCP’s public programs encourage dialogue and integrate residents into the cultural landscape of New York City.

About İnci Furni

İnci Furni (1976, Bursa) graduated from the Painting Department of Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts. Furni’s artistic practice consists of series of drawings and video images inspired from daily life. In her site-specific installations, the artist adopts a poetic language dealing with the relationship between body, gender, identity and psychology. Furni defines drawing as the finest way of dealing with image-meaning and going out of the boundaries of daily language and embraces drawing as a medium which makes the process visible and is open to possibilities. Her solo exhibitions include Where is Eros, Öktem & Aykut Gallery, Istanbul (2016); Vol. 1, Polistar, Istanbul (2014); and Same Thing Everyday, Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna and Rampa Gallery, Istanbul (2013). Her work has been exhibited in group exhibitions in many institutions, including Kyiv Biennial, Kiev (2015); Krinzinger Projekte, Vienna (2013) ARTER, Istanbul (2011); Istanbul Modern, Istanbul (2011); TBA21, Vienna (2010); and the Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul (2009).
