Perçin participated in many international art fairs such as; Art Fair Cologne’06 (Germany, 2006), Contemporary Istanbul’06, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15 & 16 (Istanbul), ArtInternational 2015 (Istanbul) SCOPE Basel 2011 & 2012 and Art Karlsruhe 2011.

Producing works using mainly oil-on-canvas technique, Perçin focuses on spaces. These spaces are an outcome of the compositions found in the photographs Perçin shoots in abandoned places she discovers. Perçin depicts the industrial areas she focuses on with a unique technique characterized with pronounced and lively brush strokes.

We come across with the spaces and objects in Perçin’s photos in forms of various collages she later designs along the process of production. Combining spaces like industrial zones, factories, depots, dockyards etc. sometimes with objects found in these spaces or sometimes with objects and images she finds elsewhere, Perçin designs a new composition and narrates these reinterpreted photo-collages on canvas. In her latest productions, we find graffiti as a recently included component.

Drawing attention towards forgotten places, Perçin questions the memory attributed to the space. However, the graffiti on the paintings implies that these spaces are still being used and that some traces are subtly left around.

Standing out with her works on canvas, Perçin also produces photo-prints intervened with photographs, collages and paint.
