'...Tuğçe Diri's works portray sections of historical places recollected with a ritualistic drawing practice, bringing symbols into a new fiction with various forms that have been seen, experienced and chosen in perception. Inspired by traditional handcrafts such as illuminated manuscripts, calligraphy and ornaments, the artist uses tradition and historical places as a means of identity and ethnicity. According to Diri, repetition and cycle is a hint to the visualization and recollection of the supreme totality of the infinite universe, while on the other hand it is also a request to re-confront and challenge herself over and over again.' Gizem Gedik
