Luca Curci – Can you talk about your personal experience in Bogotà?

Miray Seramet – I have a german mother and a turkish father. In my childwood I was always asked, what I am more: turkish or german? I really don’t know what to answer. Now, as an artist I believe, that is not necessary to be german or turkish. It is more important to be both and to show what happens when both parts come together. Maybe this is the reason why connections are so important in my work. Between Bogotà and Berlin there is a distance of about 9.500 Km. It is nice to know that my work is travelling around the world and reaches a place where people love art, too. I am very happy to know, that my work is very welcome in Bogotà.

L. C. – What did you think about the whole organizastion of the event, the artist’s selection, the communication management and opening nights?

M. S. – I am very happy and pleased about the good organization by the Bac Gallery. The people who work there are very professional and reliable people. Unfortunately it was not possible for me to attend the opening night, because it is a little bit too far away.

L. C. – What do you think about the collaboration between It’s LIQUID and BAC Gallery-Bogotà Arte Contemporàneo?

M.S. – It is a very good idea, that two art companies, from different continents, work together. Bacause art differs when you grow up in a different culture. So this collaboration is also a connection and that fits perfectly to my way to see my work and art.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Bogotà? How is it linked with the event’s theme?

M. S. – My work, “Hildegard” is a serial work from four photos, that I made. Hildegard is the firstname of my german grandma. In the photo you can see different nylons stockings in a collage form. The body, the sexuality and the identity are subjects, that really interests me in my artwork. The theme of your exhibition is similar to my artwork’s theme. Thank you for the good curation.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

M. S. -Objects called, “Flowers Rolled”- nylons, that are filled with lambswool. I will show it, the first time, at my new exhibition in Munich, on June 2016.

 L. C. – What is art for you?

M. S. – Art is authenticity, honesty, curiosity, reflection, connection, love.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?

M. S. – Yes. Different disciplines come together: art, design and architecture. Be able to contact the world without borders is something very fantasic. Even in internet’ s time, nothing is more important than real life experiences- like an exhibition.
