In Bishkek artists from 5 countries presented their works at the exhibition “From the Past to the Future”.
60 participants from Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Switzerland and Germany have presented more than 100 works. Goal of the exhibition is to call for the preservation of nature and its riches. Such materials as canvas, oil, clay, wood, and various installations were used at the exhibition.
Exposition of the works was a result of the project Nomadic Art Camp that was held at Lake Sary-Chelek in the Jalal-Abad region. The motto of the project is “Understanding and promoting the sustainable management of bio-cultural heritage of mountain landscapes”. Project manager and organizer of the Nomadic Art Camp is the director of the Bishkek-based art center B’Art center Shaarbek Amankul.
“We began to forget that the harmonious relationship between humans and nature is the most important resource for future generations. An artist should come up with a manifesto that we need to protect nature, to conserve biological diversity, and to remember the traditions and history”, – Shaarbek Amankul said.
