Aslı Baykal is a Turkish visual artist and film curator. She studied film at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. After graduating, her short documentary called Cherry, about a woman dealing with the public hospital system after falling off a cherry tree in the outskirts of Istanbul participated in the 2013 Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner. Her work is expressed in films and photographs, ranging from documentaries to magical realism in fiction. Her work addresses layered social issues and collective histories embedded in personal journeys using a sense of humor that highlights the subject instead of disguising its gravity.
