“Working site-specifically or autonomously – Arslan’s work ranges from sculpture, film, writing, to painting with a focus on research led material compositions. Her working process might best be described as stochastic: the work oscillates between dynamics and statics, coincidence and intent, chaos and order. Often touching upon socio-economic subjects without necessarily claiming a sole territory; the use of a certain poetic awkwardness and humour have become introductory tools.”
