Nazlı Dinçel’s work reflects on experiences of disruption. She records the body in context with arousal, immigration, dislocation and desire with the film material: its texture, color and the tracticle body of emulsion. Her use of text as image, language and sound attempts the failure of memory and her own displacement within a western society.
Born in Ankara, Turkey, Dinçel immigrated to the United Sates at the age of 17. Her works have been exhibited in numerous solo and programmed screenings around the world including Tiger Shorts competition at IFFR, Museum of Moving Image, Edinburgh International Film Festival and Dallas Contemporary Art Museum. She won the title for Best Experimental Film at the Chicago Underground Film Festival in 2015 with Her Silent Seaming (2014)
