Consolidation II: Sinop Collection

Consolidation II: Sinop Collection, 2017

Sophie Baumgärtner

Sinopale 6, “Transposition
curator: Nike Bätzner

The objets trouvés from the Sinopian Streets, public places, beaches, workshops, etc. form an archive of materials, forms and surfaces. They show the “cultural appropriation” of the city by the artist and her wish to become acquainted with Sinop. And they represent a microcosm of accumulation and construction. Due to the traces of usage and living the things are storages of memorization. In all their diversity they refer in excess of themselves to the macrocosm – to substantial, ecologic, economic and social correlations.

A collection of Naturalia und Artificialia from Sinop, with loans by Ali Yilmaz and Okan Akliman.
