“The photographs in Maybe I’d like to be like you manifest a longing to better understand one’s self through our relationships with others and nature. In her new works, the artist’s impersonalized and quasi-scientific engagement with natural landscapes develops into poignant reflections on the possibility of a democratic order amongst humans and the non-human. With charged gestures, unexpected mise-en-scènes, and Technicolor gradients, they gently look back at us and demand a non-objectifying gaze. The strange intimacy of Yürükoğlu’s images may be unsettling, but her choreography of a quotidian sublime instills wonder, as well as a desire to resemble, to see the world anew.”       – Gokcan Demirkazik, March 2017
