Site specific installation at Küçükyalı Arkeopark, 2016

As a guest artist for the program, The Traces of the Past for Contemporary Creativity: Urban Archeology and Küçükyalı Arkeopark supported by Istanbul Kalkınma Ajansı , Hera Büyüktaşçıyan will create a large-scale installation within the active archeological site at Küçükyalı Arkeopark. The installation will be on view from June 18 – September 3, 2016.

The Arkeopark is the most extensive archeological site to date on the Asian side of Istanbul, where the Satyros Monastery was discovered in 2001. Thought to be built by Ignatius, the patriarch of Constantinople (AD 847-857 and 867-877) in the second half of the 9th century, the site is now surreally located in a highly populated and constructed area of the city, surrounded by contemporary life.
