    Imge Özbilge

    Next to directing animated short movies, Imge Özbilge is also experimenting with the medium of animation as an art form. She analyses the boarders between animated film and installation art, questioning its midpoints and distinctions . Imge’s work is based on research and starts with a conceptual question, followed by the exploration of new visual worlds. Between 2009 and 2012, the artist conducted a research on the visualization of middle eastern mythologies. During this process she developed a passion for miniature art. Between 2014 and 2016, she inquired about the contemporary use of this art-form and wrote her thesis ‘Contemporary Ottoman Miniatures’. The surreal elements of her work are based on myths inspired by miniature art and are also a reflections of her own reality.

    Sine Özbilge

    Sine Özbilge

    Sine Özbilge is a multidisciplinary artist with a strong focus on animation and mixed-media. She holds a BA in ‘Design and Arts’ from the Libera Università di Bolzano FUB Italy, as well as an MA in ‘Animation’ from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts KASK Belgium. She has been mentored by Aldo Cibic - the contemporary successor of the renowned Italian Memphis Designer Ettore Sottsass as well as valuable artists such as Han Hoogerbrugge. Sine works often in a duo on multiple projects with her sister Imge Özbilge. While Imge tackles societal matters, Sine creates obscure worlds where subconscious desires, conflicts and struggles metamorphose into absurd and surreal artworks. These often have a mixed media basis where animation and live-action metamorphose in order to explore new connotations, narrations and stylistic forms. Her work focuses on Femininity, the Subconscious, Art history, Post-net aesthetics and Absurdism.
