Simla Civelek (b. 1974, Istanbul, Turkey) is a Toronto-based performance artist who works exclusively in performance. Her work explores the psyche through the involvement of the senses. By putting the outside world in a representational context, she attempts to unlock the dissonance of the body and environment. The subtleties of daily life — especially the instant it turns from mediocre to unprecedented — provides an intention, and a possibility for transformation. Her work has been presented in many major events in Canada and China.
