Tuğçe Çubukçuoğlu was born in 1983 in Ankara. In 2006 she graduated from Hacettepe University Faculty of Fine Arts Department of Sculpture. She reshaped 3-d objects using materials like stone, vinyl, polyester, clay and metal. In her works the balance between concept and aesthetics is manifest. Her departure point is to create exaggerated, synthetic copies of reality and to carry them into a cultural context where she analyzes ways of resisting the present-day sociopolitics such as visual hegemonies. Çubukçuoğlu takes objects out of their subjective contexts and distorts them to transform their character. The artist participated to various exhibitions, biennials and festivals, prepared an edition of her earlier works and worked in various media including video and photography. ENSA Bourges, the art school in France, inspired her to question conceptual art and pushed her to create pieces based on language, textual analysis and text.
