Elgiz Museum was home to SARP's first solo museum exhibition, a site-specific installation titled LUNAR, curated by Huma Kabakci, founder of Open Space Contemporary. The exhibition was one of the designated Neighboring Events of the 15th Istanbul Biennial, under the theme of "a good neighbor".
The installation combined survey maps of the Moon produced by NASA in the 1970s during the Apollo Missions, with floating female forms that were printed on tulle fabrics to mimic curtains. The floor was comprised of several maps of lunar craters, printed on soft forex that gave way when stepped on with high-heeled shoes, allowing women visiting the exhibit to "leave their footprints" on the Moon.
