“Between Two Seas” is a four-day walking route in the near west of Istanbul, between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea. It allows one to experience on foot the threatening transformation of Istanbul. With a total length of 60 kilometres, the trail is composed of four 15-kilometer parts can also be walked in 4 days. Layer by layer, the route goes from the outermost periphery of the city to its centre. It crosses rural and forest areas, and water basins. The project has been supported by 13th Istanbul Biennial.

Inspired by the GR2013 trail, the photographer Serkan Taycan draws a trail along the route of the future pharaonic canal planned by the President Erdogan between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. With a collective, he travels and marks it out live during a 4-day performance walk.
