I am Gevher; also known as Gigi, Su or Su Fee.
I am a wanderer. A wonderer. A dream catcher. A story-collector..
I believe I came to observe, explore, experience and know what it means to be alive on this Earth. As this requires a holistic approach to life, my vision is to see the connections rather than what defines seperation, because I simply think and know that this leads to a richer creativity and a healthier life. Life wants to be lived; not judged and ignored.
I was born in Anatolian lands, spent my childhood there, as well and moved to Heidelberg – Germany, as I was a young lady. At a turning point of my life I moved to Vienna, where I did my master studies in Medical Informatics. Currently, I live in that beautiful and messy city; Berlin where I started to focus more and more on studying the therapeutic effects of dance on body-mind and soul. Driven and accompanied by a spiritual approach to life touched by Sufi and Zen culture, I work on to re-vive and integrate these wisdoms especially in my dance, art and design work. I experience that art and design go hand in hand, yet one of them is focused on the problem, the other one on the solution. It is like the sun and the moon; the light and the darkness; women and men, death and birth.
Well… life in its completeness is the artwork itself..
