Şeyda Özdamar

Şeyda Özdamar reveals the distortions in her memory created by her personal recollections through the images created by watercolors, soaking, collages, and stitching techniques on found analog photographs. Looking at her body of work, a new fiction anchored on a historical pedestal can be recognized. Özdamar believes that the analog photograph is a historical document for the common consciousness, as well as an object of personal memory and nostalgia, and the experimental imagery she creates through the manipulation of these photographs articulate a rich and unique language. Her execution, utilization of material, and, at times, ironic approach reveal the feminist aspects of her work, specifically aimed at weakening hegemonic masculinity.

This attitude is a visualization of her stand towards society and its deformities, as well as, in the broadest sense, a represention of archival memory trapped between the concepts of education, transformation, oblivion and remembrance.
