Sketch from 2012, 99 Venuses, found in old external driver

º



In her work, Müge Yilmaz examines the paradoxes around to concept of protection with focus on community,
survival and belief (faith). Through performances, photographs and installations she creates immersive atmospheres inspired by
feminist science-fiction. Following the concept of three ecologies for observing the mental (subjective), societal and
environmental developments in a parallel method, she uses image and performance as tools for envisioning
potential futures. By keeping protection as a common denominator, her research creates speculations on preservation
and scarcity. She constantly looks for trigger points in shape of visual manifestations that provoke
subconscious reactions and reflexes. (2012-2024)
