The mainly analogue oeuvre of Nazlı Dinçel is focused on work on the body, which she always presents as an object of desire. The characteristic features of her works include the use of texts, which Dinçel scratches into the material by hand, frame by frame, and the use of mirrors, as well as her very intimate first-person narratives. In her direct and blunt way, she explores the relationship between a lover and the beloved, early sexual experiences, or an abortion. At the same time, Dinçel makes her own socialization in a conservative Muslim family tangible. “Don’t imitate,” or “Try to make the most original shots” are two directions used in her most recent film Instructions on How to Make a Film, which offers an explanation for the specific haptic quality of her work with images.
