Born 1977, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Sema Bekirovic is a visual artist whose work could be described as playful conceptualism. She uses different media, mainly video, photography and installations. Sema’s work is often inspired by scientific ideas, and deals with the supposed difference between culture and nature, and the obtaining of (and letting go of) control. Sometimes she deploys animals in her work, though not really as subject (or object), but in a more collaborative fashion. Sema studied at the Rietveld Academie and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Her work has been exhibited at De Appel (Amsterdam), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Hayward Gallery Project Space (London), Dutch Culture Institute (Shanghai) and in Times Square (NYC).
