The show is a mass peaceful assembly of Kazakh and international artists. This exhibition is a study of getting oneself out of private and throwing into the public, into the unknown. Getting out every day - from home, apartment, street, personal computer, phone, one's own thoughts, drawing it into a statement. This is a study of private-public areas. Somewhere close to the personal-equals-political but not quite there yet. Private-public as a known contrast is lighter, probably, easier to relate.
Where are our borders for the private area and where does the public area start?
Social networks, isolation, masks, social networks, internal processes, external life outside the window, behind her shoulder, on the square, in the news, in what I want to talk about, and in how I tell about it and to whom. Neighbours, social networks, children, colleagues, family, country, me, me, me...
Jaman Öner is dedicated to these relations in the works of artists, their chosen ways of communicating to their audiences and self-exhibitioning at this moment in history, in Nauryz (March) 2021.
Built by architect Aida Issakhankyzy and curator Suinbike - in a VR space with works selected as a result of an open call of artists on social networks, never intersecting with them. The place where the exhibition is located, that is, Hubs, is an open-source project that explores the possibilities of communication in mixed reality. Open source is a philosophy of open access and cultural exchange, sharing and transparency that stimulates development within communities.
Almost 50 different artists are gathered here in a gamified gallery, divided into video halls, photo halls, graphic halls and rooms of individual works. They all have something to say in their languages. And the way they see the importance to interact with the city lyrics or the auyl hum is in itself curious and fascinating.
