Idil Bozkurt

Idil Bozkurt (1990) is an artist and independent curator. She is lead curator for Hidden Paths – the touring exhibition resulting from the System Change Hive pilot. She is also the co-founder of the art collective, New Grounds. After her bachelor’s degree (2008-2012) in Philosophy from Kocaeli University in Turkey, she travelled to the UK and completed her Masters (2015-2016) in Film Studies at Sussex University. She works with various mediums such as video, photography and digital art. Her practical work combines two mediums, photography, and video, fusing the two to speculate the dissemination of the digital realm and how media is brought about and created by digital technologies. Alongside her practical work, Idil has curated various exhibitions such as; New Grounds (AOH, Brighton, 2018), Conjecture (Brighton Photo Fringe, Brighton, 2018), Fake/Make (New Grounds, Brighton and Falmer, 2019), Hidden Paths (Systems Change HIVE, UK, 2019-ongoing). Currently, she works on the New Grounds’ third year’s programme which is going to take place in the Gallery Lock In throughout May in Brighton and also she continues to operate HIVE’s 2020 touring exhibition around the UK. She works and lives in the UK.
