Synopsis
Canadian visual artist Philippe Van Eetvelt goes to Turkey to produce an artwork for Sinop Biennial, Sinopale. While he was there, the 15th July Coup Attempt occurs and Sinopale is postponed until next year because of the chaotic situation of the country. One year later, he goes back to Sinop and he is confident about completing his installation. Yet he has concerns about his work as the exhibition opening approaches. As the production process proceeds, we witness how a pheripheric biennial functions and dive into a journey through an artist’s inner world.
