Exhibiting artist Damla Tamer engages with the marks in her exhibition works while speaking to the audience in a semi-spontaneous monologue to explore questions of ethics of care, relation, production, and reproduction within our current temporal framework.


Damla Tamer is a visual artist born in Istanbul, Turkey and currently practicing in Vancouver. She has received grants and prizes, including the Andrew MacIntosh Memorial Book Prize in Fine Arts from University of British Columbia’s Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory, and has participated in artist residencies and exhibitions in Canada, Turkey and Europe, including a two-year residency at Borusan Art Center in Istanbul (2008-2009). Her work has been the focus of solo exhibitions at Darling Foundry, Montreal (2013) and the fifty fifty arts collective, Victoria (2018). She is a member of the artist-run Dynamo Arts Association and the Vancouver-based artist mothers collective A.M. (Art Mamas). She has taught at various academic institutions including the University of British Columbia, UBC Okanagan and Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
