Hande Sever
An artist and writer working across media and genres – video, performance, sculpture and photography – Sever was raised in Istanbul, Turkey and recently received an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in Valencia, CA. Informed by research-based interdisciplinary processes, her works often take up her family’s history of persecution to explore wide-ranging themes, including issues of exile, post-colonial identity, censorship, and cultural difference. Her work has been included in exhibitions and screenings at the Hauser & Wirth in Somerset, UK; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; San Fransisco Museum of Modern Art and the BOX Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. Sever has published with the Journal of Arts & Communities, The Getty Research Institute, Hayal Perdesi, 5Harfliler and the Hauser & Wirth.
