23rd Biennale of Sydney (2022) participant Hera Büyüktaşcıyan is a storyteller!

She delves into unseen and forgotten histories and reimagines them through site-specific and sculptural artworks. She plays with line, shape and pattern as geometric tools for mapping timelines and revealing narratives of the past.
