Nilbar Güres (born 1977) is a Turkish multidisciplinary artist whose work explores the politics and construction of female identity in relation to geography and religion. The launch of her first monograph, Nilbar Güres: Who Is the Subject?, published by OSMOS Books, coincides with an intimate first exhibition in New York, entitled, Pink Is the New Black at OSMOS Address including photography, collage, video and drawing. In the series Unknown Sports, Güres depicts women in their private spaces transforming them, as the artist remarks: "high jumpers instead of window cleaners, sprinters instead of shop keepers, shot-putting instead of holding our siblings in their arms." The artist leads the viewer to reevaluate and reconsider the conventional relationship between women, their domestic environments and public space, sexual politics and the perception of Muslim women in Europe.
