PRISKA C. JUSCHKA FINE ART
P R E S E N T S
Priska C. Juschka Fine Art is pleased to present Transoxiana Dreams, Kazakh artist Almagul Menlibayeva’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Menlibayeva films mythological narratives placed and staged in the vast landscape of her native Kazakhstan ravaged by 60 years of Soviet occupation. She leads her audience to the brutally changed region of the Aral Sea where its indigenous people live in the Aralkum, the desert of a once thriving region now entirely devoid of water due to radical Soviet irrigation politics...
In Transoxiana Dreams, Menlibayeva, a pictorial sorceress herself, breeds an eccentric storyline and fantastical imagery extracted deeply from her own atavistic repertoire, and leading visionally through an existing, yet unimaginable landscape in a distant and hypnagogic world.
