The Tashkent House of Photography is hosting the exhibition of works by stage designers “Magic of the Stage.”
“The exhibition proves to be an intersection of contemporary art and stage design,” art critic Lobar Mirzabaeva says. “I so great to see the involvement of students in this event. Their thinking is rather extraordinary. They use classical composition formula and never afraid to experiment. They skillfully use textures, materials, literature and styles. And, the main important moment, people understand their art.”
Each installation, video art, performance bear deep meaning. Some of them are the results of plays performed on stage, some raise philosophical questions and others – reveal social issues of the present day.
Maria Soshina represented an installation ‘Bird’s Language’ for which she used costumes from the same name play performed on the stage of the Uzbek National Academic Drama Theater. The work presented by Shuhrat Abdumalikov ‘The Eanderer’ is also taken from the play based on the novel by Alisher Navoi ‘Bird’s Language.’
Visitors attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition enjoyed the performance ‘Affection’ presented by Mohira Jumaniyazova, student at the Kamoliddin Behzod Institute of Arts and Design.
“Wings on the actor’s back personify problems each person faces in his life,” says Mohira Jumaniyazova. “Sometimes they inspire us making us stronger and moving forward. Yet, when we turn away of these problems we lose the meaning of life.”
