Maritima Artist Residency Participants:
Sena Başöz is an artist and filmmaker living and working in Istanbul. Her work investigates healing processes after cases of trauma, and recently she has been focusing on subjects such as death, regeneration, renewal and liberation. The organism’s self-repair and the balance nature obtains in the long run constitute the backbone of the narratives she employs in her works.
Her recent exhibitions include her solo show On Lightness at DEPO Istanbul, Studio Bosporus at Hamburger Bahnhof, Quiet Dialogue at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum, Sharjah Biennial Offsite Exhibition: Bahar, Istanbul and a duo exhibition at Memphis Gallery-Linz (with Lisa Truttman). Her films have been screened at Cannes Film Festival, Crossing Europe, Jihlava IDFF, Gran Paradiso and many other festivals. She participated in artist residencies at Cité Internationale des Arts Paris, Atelierhaus Salzamt Linz and Delfina Foundation, London.
