“Duble Lasmit”, the second volume of Onagöre’s multi-volume publication project on Istanbul, Tefrika Istanbul, presents Kıvılcım Sir Güngörün’s photographs with the cover illustration by Bora Başkan. As the photographs depicting Istanbul through the eyes of millennials stretch from night to day, from streets to parties, time bends and twists and responsibilities are postponed until the last minute.
About the Artist
Kıvılcım S. Güngörün (1992) is a self-documenting artist from Manisa, Turkey, and a graduate of İzmir Dokuz Eylül University, Department of Photography. She creates her works around the subjects of memory, life and death by chaining, accumulating and stacking images in various transformations through the ‘trilogy’ of street, portrait, and nature photography.
Her photographs transform into different meanings in the series and narratives she creates, and this transformative action is directly reflected in her practice, like the collages she makes with analogue and digital techniques. While it supports her with the flow of life, as well as the importance it attaches to sustainable life and carbon footprint in the city, it also continues to use elements of found objects, garbage and waste materials as a method of creating exhibitions.
