In the scope of the Kaos GL Associations’ Artist Residency Program, Ankara Queer Art, Şafak Şule Kemancı interviewed Saskya Fun Sang:

“We are surrounded by and we also exist under binary structures that in my opinion, prevent us from truly experiencing who we are, who we can be, and what we do. I find that to be very problematic. Within my artistic practice and thanks to amazing teachers/experiences that inspired me to learn about feminist, queer, transgender theory, I’ve been able to create a space where all creative possibilities are welcome and that has also changed my perspective and the way I approach not only art, but also life in general. I believe that when we approach things from a queer perspective, we allow ourselves to dig deeper and to be more genuine with ourselves and with our practices. We also become braver, more open and flexible, which impacts absolutely everything we do.”
