“I am who I am from all the things I wish I never saw and all the things I tried to leave behind. The things that brought me to this day are all the obstacles I thought would get caught up in my feet, yet they just added another step on to my ladder. All things labeled as good or bad, things that are thought to only belong to me are actually a part of all of us.

My life, our life.
Everything’s a whole.
I am becoming a whole.
We are becoming a whole. “

Ebru Sargın born in Çanakkale in 1991, Ebru Sargın is a performance artist living in Istanbul. She relates in her works to diverse lifestyles, to the alienation that people face, and to the path that is laid upon the individual along with the introduction of modern development. While she has the notion of “life” all by itself in the core of her works, she aims to unfold the questions of ‘today’ and “what are we doing?”, at the cumulative end of the process initiated by the inquiries of “what, why, how and who”. Sargın has started to study performance art in 2015, at Studio Oyuncuları in 2015, and she is currently continuing her undergraduate studies in Performing Arts at Bilgi University. Now Sargın, continues her performance as an artist of performance art platform Performistanbul.

Performistanbul is an international performance art platform, in the purpose of gathering performance artists together under the same roof, while also professionally partnering the artists with projects. One of the prominent goals of Performistanbul is to act as a resource that would enable art institutions and corporates to connect with performance artists, as it would be simultaneously creating site specific performances, in addition to being on the lookout for venues and hosts for projects.
