Rehan Miskci is a New York based visual artist working in photography and video. She holds an MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts, New York. Her series "Void" was selected as the first place winner at Baxter Street Camera Club of New York???s Annual Competition in 2015 and was also exhibited in Lift Off at Fridman Gallery, curated by Elisabeth Biondi. She participated in numerous international exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Munich, Reading and Istanbul. Her personal and commissioned work was published in magazines such as Vogue Turkey among many others.
As a member of the Armenian minority growing up in Turkey, Rehan Miskci's work is a poetic examination of displacement, absence and invisibility. These keywords simply define her identity experience while growing up in a latent and secluded culture. Mainly, her series derive from archives, and can be seen as one of the many possible interpretations of these archives. The interest lies in how they are being treated physically and how they are recontextualized. Her recent installations are concerned about how space and photography overlap and interact with each other through personal and collective memory.
