Interactive digital media artist working in River Studios
Ece Yavuz creates computer-generated worlds that meld the abstract and the familiar. As a designer, Yavuz’s clothing combines pragmatic and aesthetic values with a juxtaposition of tradition and modernity drawn from her Turkish heritage and values which influence her practice today. Her emotive style broaches topics ranging from personal suffering to political turbulence.
Yavuz uses performance pieces as a litmus test for society, drawing on these experiences to create clothing and video art. Her video work blends found footage, performance and garments with three-dimensional imagery. Yavuz previously held a residency at Mungo Art studios in Sydney from 2012 to 2014. She has exhibited in Seventh Gallery, and the Gertrude Street Projection Festival, a Liquid Architecture event and as part of Melbourne Music Week. She has collaborated in the past, and will continue to collaborate with creatives including other visual artists and musicians.
What attracted you to the space and what makes your studio suitable for your practice?
The space is in a convenient location and has all the amenities I require. The studio itself is affordable, and has plenty of room for my various practices. I am looking forward to working with the other artists as part of the River Studios community.
