Media exhibition

  • August 11 - September 30, 11 am - 9 pm daily
  • Zifergauz, New Holland Island
  • Free entrance – register here

This summer will end in style – with another media art exhibition on! Zifergauz is currently hosting the first solo exhibition of Ozan Turkkan, a Turkey-born media artist, in Russia. His Fractal exhibition is a product of his thorough studies of fractal geometry, aesthetic interpretation, and beauty in algorithms, which comes alive to the sounds of Dmitri Shostakovich-inspired melodies created by the artist himself. It is both captivating and inspiring, see for yourself! 

Concert at the sea

Live music and marine scenery – isn't this a perfect ending to a wonderful summer? On August 27, pianist Stanislav Chigadaev will give a majestic live performance that will bring classical music to the ever-bustling Sevkabel Port. You will get to hear beloved and familiar pieces created by composers Ludovico Einaudi (he wrote the soundtrack for The Intouchables) and Yann Tiersen (remember Amélie?).
