Melike Altınışık Architects - MAA, takes part with the ‘THE ECHO’ installation in the Beyoğlu Light Exhibition, curated by Erdem Akan, as part of the Beyoğlu Cultural Road Festival which is organized to expand the international vision of Istanbul in terms of history, culture, architecture, economy and tourism and 'THE ECHO' hosted their visitors between October 30, 2021 and November 14, 2021
Beyoğlu Light Exhibition hosts light installations of 11 artists on the route of Istiklal Avenue from Gezi Park to Galataport. In the exhibition, which includes artists from disciplines such as art, design and architecture, the designers draw attention to the light, the dark, the night, the concepts such as color and form made visible in the light, togetherness, existence, change and transformation, differences and tolerance.
MAA establishes a unique dialogue with the citizens by making the invisible visible with ‘THE ECHO’ of Historical Matbah Emini Hasan Ağa Fountain (1649), which is abandoned, forgotten and one of the most important witnesses of many encounters and re-meanings in the city.
‘THE ECHO’ installation can be visited on corner of Lüleci Hendek Street connecting Yüksek Kaldırım Street and Fırçacı Street in Beyoğlu where different cultures meet throughout history of Istanbul and which still debates cosmopolitanism today.
