A Turkish artist, Vahit Tuna, exhibited an open-air art installation in which he hung 440 black heels to symbolize the deaths of women in Turkey in 2018 due to domestic violence. The exhibition was a part of Yankose- a not-for-profit arts platform started in 2017 by Kahve Dunyasi, a Turkish coffee chain. The shoes have been hung on two installation walls of the building hosting the Kahve Dunyasi branch in  Istanbul’s Kabatas neighbourhood in Beyoglu district. It was exhibited earlier this month and will remain until six months.
