Merve Terzi, born 1988 in Istanbul and has lived and worked in Berlin since 2013.
Her conceptual works include photography, photo collage and montage, analog and digital,
conceived as a serial group of work along with a photo book.
Throughout her projects, Merve deals with the idea of time, personal identity as a construction,
and memory. Inspired autobiographically, she is always interested in finding out what lies
beyond the surface, the simply visible. How is identity formed, what role do narratives play in
this, to what extent do we repeat stories of our past, and what is the significance of cultural
affiliation and family?
Merve studied Art History in Freiburg, London, and Berlin (2008-14); in 2019 she graduated in
Photography from BTK – Faculty for Art & Design, Berlin. As a member of FK-Kollektiv, she is
also involved in curatorial work and book making processes.
