Betül Sefika is a poet and visual artist based in Brussels.
Having a graphic design background, her writings try to draw the formal attributes of their media into their content. Her visual work revolves mainly around materialising absence.
The requirements of a language that wants to refer to absence, without filling it’s void and becoming the subject, make that her imagery is often of an intimate, airy, fragmented and/or small scaled quality.
In addition to studying, concocting and then externalising the sneakiest of interrelational acts of violence for ‘Revenge Yelp Warfare By Proxy’, she spends her days at Hectolitre probing translucent and reflective materials in order to translate drawings into more spatial work and assembling sketches and stray sentences, slowly constructing a zine with Bored Wolves in Krakow.
