Askhat Akhmediyarov’s – solo show Malus Sieversii is named after the wild apples that gave the former capital of Kazakhstan its name: Almaty, or “Fatherland of Apples”.
For his solo-show in Dubai, Askhat Akhmediyarov has created a series of new works and site –specific installations where he mixes traditional symbols of his native soil to show Kazakhstan in transition.
Askhat Akhmadiyarov has an outstanding art vision and interjects his own multifaceted personal identity into his work. His evocative, and metaphorically charged imagery investigate issues of his country caught between two worlds. Askhat Akhmediyarov’s practice plays on various forms of modernity — television, consumerism, urbanisation — into "traditional" Kazakhstan.
Artist is just two months fresh from his first museum show Singular Plural, in the National Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan where the artist included the works of last 4 years: performances, photography, installations, videos and paintings.
