I was in Amsterdam last weekend. Such a serene city. 
I was first impressed by the hotel we stayed in. Hotel Pulitzer Amsterdam welcomed us with a piano hanging from the ceiling and a small flower shop corner. The old portraits and choice of artworks inside the hotel were beautiful. We had both breakfast and lunch at Janzs restaurant of the hotel, the food was incredible. 
The streets nearby the canals and the little shops on them gave me inspiration. One of them was “Guild of Holland”. Andrea Molti was creating leather accessories with his hand and the ones on show were very elegant. Amsterdam is a city of art. I saw many galleries on those streets. One of them impressed me with the work “Passage” by Mohau Modisakeng. “Passage” is a body of work consisting of performance, photography and film.  It focuses on slavery dismemberment of African identity and its enduring erasure of personal histories. 
We went to The Rolling Stones’ concert on Saturday night. Seeing Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood on stage was like going back in the history. 
My last stop before leaving on Sunday was Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum. It is a world of magazines and books. I got lost in the store and found many good ideas for Sanayi 313’s upcoming site from the magazines I could carry with me.

MINI INTERVIEW WITH GÜNNUR ÖZSOY

Sculptor Günnur Özsoy’s atelier is in the area of Oto Sanayi, nearby Sanayi 313. Apart from being neighbours, we share the same vision. As of last week, the artist’s binary sculptures are being exhibited at Sanayi 313. These abstract forms have created a new sereneness in 313.

This binary work you created at the end of the 90’s shine out with their colour. What does burgundy mean to you?
I made a series of sculptures using the colour burgundy after the 1999 earthquake. These are outcomes of despair, sadness and resentment. My binary work exhibited in Sanayi 313 right now are a follow-up of the series. I like the term burgundy since it reflects the colour of red wine. I like to give meanings to the colours I use; such as livid and eggplant purple. In this way, my understanding of art is more than just colours reflecting other notions. Colour of burgundy in the poem Odyssey is a great example. 

You first exhibited these sculptures in a horizontal form. Today they are being exhibited vertically. What made them transform?
My biggest claim as an artist is creating abstract sculptures; organic forms without any aspects. Anyone can exhibit them in any way they like. To make the audience feel this freedom, I have exhibited my works in many different ways; sometimes horizontal or vertical, sometimes on a base or hanged from the ceiling.  My aim is to indicate that my sculptures can be exhibited and used in every way.

313, since it is nearby your atelier, has been a place you come frequently since our first days. How does it feel to exhibit your works at this place?
Through my sculpture practice, the relation I have with spaces becomes deeper. Sanayi 313 is always regenerating and in action with the changing objects inside the place. This makes it alive. An artwork’s only belonging should not be museums and art galleries. A way to make them alive is to present them in spaces like Sanayi 313.

It might be the most ideal vacation city. With its weather, sea, landscape, food and museums, Nice is an uplifting location. Our chef Müge is touched by the city in a completely different way once more after many years.   

It was very exciting for me to visit Nice after 15 years.
While I was in secondary school, I stayed in Antibes in south of France for the summer to improve my French. At that time, my sense of eating was not clear like today. As time passes, people’s interests and curiosities change.
During my vacation, I ate delicious food, I saw many district bazaars, visited the museums of my interest. I have some suggestions. If you visit Antibes, a must visit is Picasso’s museum. It is the most luminous exhibition space with a great landscape I have ever seen. The beauty of the paintings come together with the setting and take you to another world. I also suggest visiting Musée Matisse and Musée Marc Chagall. 
Since my healthy living walks are going very well, I continued with my morning routines during vacation, too. They were setting up the Cours Saleya bazaar during my walks. Fresh blackberries, raspberries and zucchini blossoms from the garden became an incredible visual feast for me. I wanted to put those vegetables and fruits in my luggage and bring them here. I came up with a better idea. I bought the seeds of the vegetables and fruits and brought them here and gave them to Mr. Güven so he can plant them. Different types of tomatoes’ and zucchinis’ seeds were my favourite. The most exciting seeds were freckles lettuce and endive. I hope the seeds give flowers and I can manage to cook delicious food.
We ate good food. Coquillages Brun restaurant located in Cannes was really different. It has been open since the year 1953. I haven’t eaten such fresh and delicious seafood for a long time. Oysters, limpets and crabs were really tasty. We had clam on top crab risotto, which was the speciality of the day. It was just perfect. 
What I liked the most was people stopping by mini cocktail bars after work.  I would love it if the same culture would exist here in Turkey. I think it is something that makes people happy. 
My Nice vacation was really pleasurable. I came back with new ideas of dishes and experience. I suggest you follow our menu…

FALL AT SANAYI 313

The melancholy of Autumn is often replaced by the idea of new things and beginnings.
“Back to school”, “fashion overdose”, “fall vegetables” or “lying in front of the TV with pajamas”. These ideas can really make us feel good.
While I was swimming in the blue sea of Symi yesterday, what excited me the most among the things to do at home today was viewing Sanayi 313 pre-fall collection. I got excited for winter days. 
Serena created the collection with the power she got from Voltaire’s quote; “Man is free at the moment he wishes to be.” Proust, Louis XIV, Botticelli and Marie Antoinette are accompanying Voltaire while giving their names to new season’s shoes and bags. I felt like I was in a wonderland inside the new collection. My favorites are Antoinette’s; the most fairy ones among them all. 
WE HAVE A HEALTHY MENU NOW!

By the Instagram stories Müge shared, I recently realized that she started mornings walks. Once you begin to live healthy in one course, the rest comes easily. Now, she created a healthy menu for Sanayi 313 Bebek. She is sharing the details with us:

I was working on the healthy menu for a long time. I think all the innovations are created as a result of needs. 
These days, I begin to reason those who care about what they eat. The awareness in nutrition is developing, the trends are changing. 
Refined sugar, simple carbohydrates and foods containing preservatives are very rarely consumed. Instead of these, foods that are rich in protein and fibre, nutritious; low glycaemic index foods are in great demand. Flour leaves its place to almond flour, sugar on the other hand is replaced by dried fruits. As an alternative to dairy products (allergies are growing), almond milk and soy milk are being consumed. 
I created some new alternatives to our menu for those who care about their health and pay attention to what they eat. 

•    Scrambled egg white with turmeric, avocado on pumpernickel bread
•    Whole-wheat roll with cheese, pink tomatoes and basil, hard-boiled egg
•    Detox: Cucumber, parsley, green apple and ginger juice
•    Cooked oatmeal with milk, agave syrup, cinnamon, banana
•    Chia pudding with fresh fruits, coconut milk and lime peel

*Our heathy menu, which is served in Sanayi 313 Bebek everyday can be tasted in Sanayi 313 Maslak on Saturdays only.

When I saw Kemal Tufan’s works many years ago, I was really impressed. Inspired by the nature, he creates ironic sculptures. I have always liked huge and tiny objects. In our small corner Sanayi 313 Bebek, Kemal Tufan’s big sculptures are exhibited this month. They matched each other very well. 
Kemal Tufan was born in Silivri in 1962. He has a degree in the sculpture department in fine arts faculty of Mimar Sinan University. He has joined many personal and group exhibitions both in and out of Turkey. His exterior sculptures are exhibited in 34 different countries’ various cities.

Music editor Figen Hazbay told us about the boutique electronic festival she went. The festival, which took place in a farmhouse and welcomed only 2000 people was very exciting, she said. She made me curious!
Festival Era is a 2000 people Electronic Music Festival located in Llagostera Town – within an hour’s drive from Barcelona. Taking place in a farmhouse’s property, this festival took me away from the city and left me all alone with nature and music. 
The festival began in day time and went until the early hours of the morning. Mostly Catalan groups were on the stage. I had the chance to know new musicians. The most satisfying musician for me was my new discovery Awir Leon. Born in France, Amsterdam based musician is also a producer and a performer. He was taking place in a festival in Spain for the first time. His excitement was perfectly reflected on the stage. His voice was still on my mind after I left the festival. 
I should also talk about my favorite groups. Two Catalan groups, which I had the chance to listen to in Barcelona; Playback Maracas and Animic. They both performed very well on the stage. 
For some reason, little and local festivals excite me more. Festival Era was definitely one of them.
ENİS’ MYKONOS DIARY

Enis is telling us about his Mykonos vacation. I took pleasure reading what he wrote nearly as much as our Mykonos trip. read more
I start my day at Marenga Milk Bar. As I am drinking my iced coffee, I am eating scrambled eggs, which I know I will never forget the taste of. A cute girl is sitting across me, don’t worry about who she is.  On the hills of Mykonos, this primitive location is to explore for. Marenga Milk Bar makes you feel good with its bamboo ceilings, concrete floor and natural warm colours. Despite the slow service, I leave the place happy with its owner Angela’s smile. 
I don’t like to drive, especially in an island! I found something like Uber and thought of how things spread so quickly for couple of minutes. 
Then, I visit Nikos’ store and I can’t drink anything other than water. It’s very hot and becomes even hotter among the diamonds. 
I know it’s going to be a great vacation. Alemagou, Principote/Panormas and Sundays’ favorite Scorpios smile at me from my list. I am staying on a boat but this time this sailboat means only a heavy sea. Mykonos is not suitable for boating. But my family and my eight-months-old pineapple, my niece soothe the speed of the wind and white surfs of the sea. We get used to each other with my pineapple on this vacation. She is afraid of my beard but I can’t trim.
I love getting lost in the streets of this island, which never misses to make you smell the lamp. While looking for Astra, I come across with Interni. There is a good party but I seem to know the faces. I want to go on with being a tourist. 
I forget about my list and clear my head. I find myself in a fish restaurant called Koursaros inspired from Japanese cuisine. I like the place even more when I see Sake on the menu. Then, I go to Astra located in the town with my friend from university. There is still no plans. It went like that till the end of the trip.
As the sun raised in my cabin on Monday morning, I felt like I was in the office. Phone calls, e-mails and everything that we are enslaved by everyday routines begin to smile at me. 
I will go back in the soonest time…
