Artist bio

Esra Nesipoğulları, 1991 Turkey, architect / multidisciplinary artist, born and raised in Turkey. Currently resident in Italy. She accomplished two residencies in Toulouse and Marseille during the period of her BA. Also in 2013, she had been granted to travel to Cuba for research about the use of semi-public spaces in the socialist context. Later on, working for over two years in several architectural design studios, in London, Istanbul, and Mantua, she moved to the art and curatorial field. Her works often respond to personal stories in cultural and political contexts.  She is also the associate founder of Ambaradan Think Tank with Amal Muntaser.
