Our bodies may undergo some changes by involuntary surgical interventions. In such cases, change does not happen only in the physical form but also in the perception of body, identity, and the perceptions in the mind. (...) Disintegration, cut and exposure of the body make the trauma inevitable. The artist borrows the intervened, cut, dissymmetrical organ of the body and examines it again in every new form created through art. Destiny of the given body is sacrificed to its own remains with fragments and redesigned. Binary structure, which complements each other as much as opposes, witnesses the transformation of life into art.

Refa Emrali was born in 1962 in the Sungurlu district of Çorum. Between 1979-1983, she received her undergraduate degree at Gazi University, Department of Painting, and her master's degree from Hacettepe University Fine Arts Faculty in 1987. She received her proficiency degree in art from the same university in 1994. Refa Emrali, who became a professor in 2010, continues her academic career at the same institution.
