MAY PARLAR ( b. 1981, Istanbul ) is a multidisciplinary artist and designer from Istanbul & New York and currently based in Berlin.


She creates performance-based imagery exploring the human condition and the  nomadic experience of 'being' in constructed realities. The idea of self, time & memory, and the notions of belonging and alienation are recurrent themes in her work.

Apart from her fine art practice, she is a researcher, filmmaker and leads art & design studios at different universities.
