Çıkma Ziller

2017, Evliyagil Museum

Being salvaged from the buildings that are waiting to be demolished, the doorbell boxes have different manufacturing date and different bell tones; some of analogue and some of them digital. Some sounds calls for birds. Some calls a nostalgia of childhood family visits. Electrically connected, they are placed above the entrance door of the Evliyagil Museum hidden from the eyes of the guests. After they are triggered by the motion sensor, each box, all together, starts a bell cacophony alarming each visitor who enters the museum. The bells starts to ring in every 20 minutes as if someone has rung all the buzzers and run away.
