Yesim Paktin

Paktin attempts to resonate the absurd nature of our interaction with everyday objects in her artwork.

“I see it as my duty, as an artist, to reflect the sheer senselessness of the political and mass incidents in the contemporary world. It is my sole purpose to express myself through art in order to make my existence worthwhile.”

The artist compares the absurdness of superimposing two phenomena that doesn’t belong together in an artistic composition, as the reality itself.  Paktin attempts to create a conceptual depiction of phenomena to find their unique essence and become semiotic symbols.
