Gulnur Mukazhanova: Solo Show
Aspan Gallery is pleased to present the Gulnur Mukazhanova’s first solo show in ten years in Almaty.
Gulnur Mukazhanova lives and works in Berlin and is one of the most sought-after Central Asian artists in the international arena. Her works were exhibited in London, Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Turin and the Central Asian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
In her works, Gulnur Muravanova works with traditional for Central Asia materials and fabrics - silk and felt. Designed for household use, in her works, fabrics are used in intricate installations or as a prop in her photo and video projects.
Specially for the exhibition at Aspan Gallery, the artist created a new series of works "Post-Nomadic Reality", using hand-felted wool. Abstract works, saturated with colors will be presented along with the 2013 series of photographs “Global Society”, in which people of different cultures, ages and nationalities appear in white felt masks. Masks hide the identity of models and make everyone equal. This topic is relevant now more than ever. The exhibition is complemented by an interactive installation in which viewers themselves can experiment with felt masks and their own identity.
Gulnur Mukazhanova’s solo show will be held in Aspan Gallery space in Villa Boutiques & Restaurants (Al-Farabi, 140A, Almaty) from 8 September to 7 November, 2020.
