Curator: Işın Önol

Hotel Ada is an installation about a beach resort, stated in the Karakum region of Sinop. Built in the 80s, it includes bungalows, camping and Hotel Ada. The Hotel is not just an accommodation place for families from Sinop, it’s also a memory place that people used to used it for celebrations like weddings and parties. After this people were expulsed and the house was sold in 2008. It was determined by court of law that Government was involved in corruption during the bid and since then that building hasn’t been used. Hotel Ada installation interrogates the relation of architecture

between nature and fund, some places such as bungalows, tents which have temporary structures and structure of hotel, which have income values. This desolated unique location of the Hotel Ada, despite many reactions, builds relations between the Sinop that has a ongoing project about nuclear energy and loneliness of the whole country.
