İşeri’s work is of a language of inner vision – fluid, open and direct. While İşeri is palpably present in every line and mark, her work evades fixity and meaning. While a dance occurs between signifier and signified, inner and outer worlds are never in opposition – a pervasive symbiosis marries every line and form within an open field of possibilities.
Merve İşeri lives and works in London. She graduated from Politecnico di Milano in Communication Design in 2014 and has since been living between London and İstanbul. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Milan, Istanbul, Miami, Chicago, Brussels and London. Her first solo exhibition Her Brain is a Travelling White Bullet with Ballon Rouge Collective in Istanbul in 2017 initiated her work into the international contemporary art world. Her second solo exhibition with BRC As a Chance Meeting was in 2019 in Brussels. Most recently, her work was shown at NADA art fair in Miami in December 2019. İşeri’s work has been published in The Financial Times, Harper’s Bazaar Turkey, the Huffington Post, and in Artforum’s social media.
