Ulufer Çelik (b. 1992, Antalya/ Turkey) is an artist, who lives and works in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
She completed her studies in the MA Art Praxis program at the Dutch Art Institute in 2018. Her artistic practice explores the potentialities of narrative and myth-making, that is expressed through moving image, poetry, drawing, sound and performance. In her work, she constructs on multi-layered planes through a non-linear perception of time. She searches for queer, immigrant, feminist ways of making and thinking with the archeological, spiritual and spatial traces of memory. She is a member of Eat-House Collective, W1555 Artist Community and a resident at Putsebocht 3.
Her work has been exhibited in several shows at Growing Space, Corridor Project Space, Are Projects, Rib, State of Concept, Yellow Brick Gallery, Litost Gallery, Institute for Provocation, Belmacz Gallery and Wuerttembergischer Kunstverein.
