Facing East, 2019
Alize Zorlutuna is a queer interdisciplinary artist, writer and educator whose work explores relationships to land, culture and the more-than-human, while thinking through settler-colonialism, migration, history, and solidarity. Having moved between Tkarón:to and Anatolia (present-day Turkey) both physically and culturally throughout her life has informed her practice—making her attentive to spaces of encounter. Enlisting poetics and a sensitivity to materials, her work spans video, installation, photography, printed matter, performance and sculpture. The body and its sensorial capacities are central to her work. Alize has presented her work across Turtle island and internationally. She is currently based in Tkarón:to.
