Evren da Conceição
With a focus on the performance art Evren tries constantly exploring the intersections between performance art and different fields such as sound/music, philosophy and visual arts.
She defines herself as “nomad” both artistically and geographically. Evren started her carrier as an actress/performer in Istanbul. In 2003 she moved to Vienna, which was followed by collaborations with artists from different disciplines and residencies in different cities (Istanbul, Vienna, Bangkok, Manila, Kyoto, Tokyo, etc.).
In 2006 she started to live in Salvador da Bahia /Brazil. There she had two and half years intense contact with the Afro-Brazilian culture and music and started to focus her work constantly on music/sound. In the last three years she is researching and exploring specifically performance art and electronic music. In her works she is singing, using spoken word, experimenting with her voice, producing and DJing. Evren is founder member and artistic director of RhizomArt and a passionately vinyl collector.
