About the designer


Seray Asker

Multidisciplinary artist Seray Asker was born in 1978 in Istanbul. She has been living in Spain since 2015. After graduating from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Department of Interior Architecture, she continued her education at Utrecht Fine Arts University, Department of Plastic Arts. Completing her studies in the Netherlands, the artist lived 10 years in Sweden where she worked as an Art Consultant in the design sector and her works created in various disciplines of art took part in many personal and group exhibitions in various countries. In the same period, as her second interest, she studied languages at Uppsala University. In Spain, where she moved to complete her Spanish studies, she focused on ceramic and mural works as well as working as an art consultant for the last four years. In 2021, she moved her art to Mexico as an outcome of the \"Ceramic Musical Instruments Design\"  scholarship she won in Oaxaca/Mexico. The artist, deeply influenced by Mexican culture, conveyed the inspirations of this culture to her works and she gave life to clay by creating ceramic musical instruments. Her Mexican interactions are also reflected in her rug designs and her mural works. In the same year, she popped up her mobile studio in Cappadocia where she also collaborated with the local artists. Currently, in addition to adobe house architectural projects in Mexico, she is participating in contemporary art events, exhibitions, symposiums and competitions with her ceramics, paintings, sculptures and fibre art pieces.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
