Eda Soylu focuses her art practice on installation. While she deals with concepts such as home, dwelling, oppression and suppression in her installations, she pays close attention to the space and the belonging of her works within the space. Soylu centers her practice upon the relationship between the artwork, the space and the visitor. Her solo exhibitions, which are a continuation of each other, belong to the series And The House Frowned, which carries pieces from the artist’s personal life, along with the culture she is a part of.

She had her first solo exhibition in Istanbul, in 2014, with Berlin Art Projects, “Not Being Forgotten How Strange!”. In 2016, she had her second solo exhibition “Constructing the House Anew” at Kadir Has University, Gallery Khas in Istanbul.  She had her third solo exhibition in Istanbul, in 2018, with Mixer, "Remnants From My Grandmother's Home". She currently lives and works in Istanbul.
