Melike Kara

Was born in 1985 in Bensberg, Germany. Lives and works in Cologne. Her work explores a personal approach to figuration that’s informed by diverse interests ranging from 20th century German figurative traditions and social hierarchies, to her familial history of migration. Tapping historically Ottoman mystical traditions and self-indulgent decadence, we often see her characters in dream like trances, unaware of each other, consumed by their own existence, their dreams and hopes.
