GELINCIK GELIN   / The Bride with Poppy flowers  //   2014

 She ever-changing story of eternal search

Mathilde Melek An represents this beautiful synthesis between French and Turkish Cultures; her art, itself, is part of this mixture.

An's work is not only a tie between East and West but also a tie between generations ;

She is actually bringing a new "regard", her work reflects individual and collective, traditional and modern cultural approach.

She is in a constant search to interpret different identities in an evolutionary "voyage"; she is mainly using photography and video to interpret different cultures codes and she also has her own way of photography story telling.
