Esra Oezen focuses on the contingency of perception and its impact on our conception of the past, present, and future. The artist particularly explores the time that elapses between perception and the actual event. She utilises visual media such as books and photographs as substantive and medial carriers of her work. Repetition and apparent disappearance are significant parameters in her oeuvre.
In her works, the emphasis is not so much on the mere representation that refers to something, but rather on the reflection of the existing and its variability. The individual components of her works serve as starting points for further investigations, initiating a creative process shaped by the diversity of discovered elements.
