As a practice-led artist, Ülkü Çağlayan's work encompasses facilitation and performance, moving fluidly between the two. The concept of the thought body serves as the primary vessel for her artistic thinking. In her practice, the body becomes a site for exploring sensuality, breath, playfulness, and transgression. Emphasizing the participatory nature of the body as a generative methodology, she incorporates various elements such as text, spoken word, sound, live installations, and moving images.
Ülkü's work resides at the intersection of social choreography and the psychosphere, delving into protomental states and embodied imagination. In her writing practice, she weaves together the threads of écriture féminine, and the realm of dreams. She is a facilitator of "Social Dreaming Matrix," a process that explores accessing shared "unthought knowledge" through the analysis of nighttime dreams and associations.
