The Pavilion of Turkey at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia (28th May-27th November 2016) will feature DarzanÃ – a project about fronterier infringement and hybridity.
Curated by Feride ÇiçekoÄlu, Mehmet KütükçüoÄlu and ErtuÄ Uçar, with curatorial collaborators Cemal Emden and Nam?k Erkal, the exhibition team of DarzanÃ consists of Hüner Aldemir, Caner Bilgin, Hande CiÄerli, Gökçen Erk?l?ç, Nazl? Tümerdem and YiÄit Yalg?n.
The Pavilion of Turkey, coordinated by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (?KSV) and co-sponsored by Schüco Turkey and VitrA, is located at the Sale d’Armi, Arsenale.
The project challenges the increasing confinement within borders of religion, language, race, nationality, ethnicity and gender – highlighting the common cultural and architectural heritage shared between the arsenals of Istanbul and Venice.
For the Biennale Architettura 2016, a last vessel, Ba?tarda, has been constructed out of abandoned materials found in the old dockyard of Istanbul and transported to Venice to suggest a new connection in Mediterranean.
The project title DarzanÃ means dockyard and is a hybrid word, like the Turkish word tersane and the Italian word arsenale.
