Tarkan: A Star On His Own
While the Turkish club-med region of Antalya has recently seen stars from Hollywood flock to its shores - such as the likes of Monica Bellucci, Sharon Stone, Richard Gere and Mariah Carey for the opening of one of the most luxurious hotels in the Mediterranean - Turkish artist Tarkan has been taking part in a different gallery of stars in Istanbul.
Wife of critically acclaimed and three times Cannes Film Festival winner film-maker Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Ebru Ceylan is presenting 46 celebrities from her photo lens in an exhibition called "Kutup Yıldızı" (North Star), which includes her famous husband and Tarkan.

Opening to the public on 3 June, the exhibition is scheduled to be held at the Aya Irini (Hagia Irene), a museum located in the outer courtyard of the Topkapı Palace in Istanbul, where Tarkan gave a memorable concert in 1996.
