Upcoming show at Myymälä 2, Helsinki 27.10 - 20.11.2022
‘From Memory to Memorial’ series of painting, and a video work.
This project is the continuation of my ealier project 'From Laghter to Cry' which I exhibited in B-galleria, in Turku, Finland 2019. It takes its reference from my familial past around some historical events between 1920-1930 in Turkmenistan. In this project, my focus is on portraying the memory of our familial history of that specific time. Nevertheless this current work goes beyond memory by adding multiple layers and concurrence of different elements to construct a connection that is either temporal (before and after), spatial or relational.
