Simla Civelek

Simla Civelek (b. 1974, Istanbul, Turkey) is a Toronto based performance artist. She creates performances that explore alienation, indulgence, memory and examine time’s relativity to emotions. Using the pretext of theatricality, she aims to create a disguise in which representation and reality are juxtaposed and played off each other. Her work has been presented at the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art, Nuit Blanche in Toronto, Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, B.C., and OPEN Performance Art Festival in Beijing, China among other venues.
