I stepped into Sanayi 313 and saw those big Three Monkeys sculpture by Mahmut Aydın. As the artists explains, the sculpture is a symbol of three monkeys; one covering his ears, who hears no evil; one covering his eyes; who sees no evil and one covering his mouth, who speaks no evil just like the system wants us to do… Then it comes to my mind, Enis recently brought up a new little ‘three monkeys’ object, which is now on one of the shelves in the store. There are no coincidences just like all those no coincidences I witnessed lately. My perception level is broadening. 
I create time to listen to myself every day. I follow what I hear, see and my unconsciousness very closely. This gives way to good things in my life. 
1989-Diyarbakır born artist Mahmut Aydın’s sculpture made me realize the positive comeback of my meditations. The artist shows people’s revolution through time by environmental and social, natural and artificial conditions that affect humans’ growth and freedom. I realized my own revolution, thanks to him.

When Serena told me that her inspiration for Stelle Glimmer booties was David Bowie I got really excited. The life of David Bowie was one of the very first articles I wrote for a magazine. After, I got so interested in his life and character that I even have a black &white photography of him hanging on my living room’s wall now. 
I remember how I began my article; with a quote from David Bowie:
“As an adolescent, I was painfully shy, withdrawn. I didn’t really have the nerve to sing my own songs on stage, and nobody else was doing them. I decided to do them in disguise so that I didn’t have to actually go through the humiliation of going on stage and being myself.”

Often inspired by music, Serena created the Stelle Glimmer booties, using the beautiful glitter texture to build an avant-garde boot with a tiny round heel; a style that gives nod to the late ‘David Bowie’.

I realized something during my London vacation last week. I take pleasure out of visiting the familiar restaurants, shops and museums I like just as discovering new tastes, finds and visuals. 
During my 3-days visit, I generally did the activities I am used to do in London. I walked around Notting Hill streets; visited my favorite bookshop Lutyens & Rubinstein, had lunch in Assaggi, had brunch in 202, watched the artistic movements of Yashin Sushi’s chef while eating delicious sushi with no soy sauce and stopped by Liberty.
My first-time activities were going around the Affordable Art Fair. The concept of “affordable” varies from person to person of course. Seeing the artworks created by young artists was very pleasurable. I had lunch at Ivy Chelsea Garden. The food was not that bad but I don’t think I will go there one more time. I had tasty cocktails while listening to live Jazz in Rosewood Hotel. This spot is definitely going to be included in my London routines from now on. 
If you’d ask why my London photos are black & white, let’s say it’s a surprise. Who knows, maybe black & white photography is going to be a new routine in our lives. Who doesn’t love routines?

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.
