Melis Erdem is an artist-interior architect currently based in Istanbul. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Architecture in Istanbul and her Master’s Degree in Retail Space in Barcelona. After 2 years of nourishing collaborations in Barcelona she came back to Istanbul in 2017 to dedicate herself to her artistic projects. Despite her educational background she plays with chaotic figures to interpret imperfections of life in contrast of the perfection and technicality of the architectural world. Her works focuses on finding balance within the chaos and accepting gently the natural cycle of growth and decay. Melis gives form to new compositions with undesired and abandoned materials, giving a new perspective to objects once orphaned of their usefulness.
