Within an interdisciplinary approach and a strong artistic family background, Dilek Aydıncıoğlu is an independent artist and researcher. She explores the contemporary dynamics of ceramics and its uses in both sound and visual arts. In addition to her work in these domains, Aydıncıoğlu is currently leading architectural installation and art work restoration projects in her firm and working on hand built porcelain/stoneware techniques in her studio in Istanbul. Her works have been exhibited in one solo and 17 group shows, 3 competitions and can be found in 8 corporate and private collections. She has written 10 presented papers and 2 published articles. She's led seven Architectural Projects on Relocation and Conservation of big scale murals and sculptures of private, corporate and government collections. In her relocation artwork projects she’d developed an artistic and out-of-the box attitude towards a contemporary dialogue between the historical codes of the preserved art works and the newly recognized codes, functionality and the esthetics of the high-tech buildings.
In 1999 Aydincioglu graduated from the University of Ankara, Department of Indology and she is a former student of BC, Canada based clay artist Mas Funo. She has been a member of BC Potters' Guild since 2000.
