Güres was born in Istanbul and lives and works in Vienna and Istanbul.

Using a variety of media including photography, collage, drawing, and textiles, Güres produces theatrical tableaux of women, moving between performance and the everyday. Her images combine humour with compositions seen in paintings, as well as costumes and props, subverting representational notions of femininity and cultural identity.
