Mine Burckin@mineburckin / mineburckin@hotmail.com

Born in Istanbul in 1992, Mine has completed a Bachelor degree of Art History in Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University. She works based in Copenhagen since 2018.

Mine works in different medias such as painting, needlework and textile, addressing themes like being uprooted and disconnection between artist and artists’ own environment. Her works get inspired by both today’s world and art history. Her way of using materials focuses on creating intimacy and dialogue, for this reason, she uses personal materials as components like fabric straps from her clothes, used cardboards or anything around her. Her works take shape mainly on her own experiences, but they aim to reach the whole and question identity and authority. Stories beneath of works often intent to spark a debate.
