ABOUT NAZLI DİNÇEL:

Nazlı Dinçel’s work reflects on experiences of disruption. She records the body in context with arousal, immigration, dislocation and desire in juxtaposition with the medium’s material: texture, color and the passing of emulsion. Her use of text as image, language and sound attempts the failure of memory and her own displacement within a western society.

Selected exhibitions include Artist Television Access, Images Film Festival, Northwest Film Forum, Chicago Underground Film Festival, FLEXFEST, Experiments In Cinema, Tama Art University, Louis B James Gallery and Millennium Film Workshop. She has won Best Essay Film at FlexFest 2015 and Best Experimental Film at Chicago Underground Film Festival in 2015.

MONO NO AWARE SCREENING SERIES:
The CONNECTIVITY THROUGH CINEMA series will present the work of artists, film-makers and curators who are traveling or presenting special interactive programs in-person. Our hope is to engage the community by showing work with a focus on post-screening discussion.
