EMIRHAKIN is a performance artist whose practice is an embodied inquiry into identity politics. By challenging the bodily experience of artist and the audience, his long-durational pieces dismantle the predefined ways of observing and performing, consider the space beyond physicality as a negotiation, and resist the constructed idea of time through the modes of queer temporalities.
