Sinopale 3, “Hidden Memories,  Lost Traces”
Curator: T. Melih Görgün

Hoşgeldiniz, shows a photographic database (in progress) of the Kurdish ghostvillages in Southeast Turkey. The occasion of Sinopale 3 made the artist choose this work because of the link with Turkey and because of the site of the exhibition, which is a former political prison. On this moment many people who helped to realize this project are in prison for political reasons, most probably in the conditions this specific Sinop prison shows. The project shows 125 ghostvillages from a total of approx. 3500 dispersed all over the landscape.
