Saodat Ismailova


Garage Museum of Contemporary Art
Age limit — 12+

The first Russian solo exhibition of the renowned Uzbek director and artist Saodat Ismailova, who participated in the 55th Venice Biennale (Central Asia Pavilion, 2013) and will take part in documenta 15 (Kassel, 2022), brings together her recent videos and new works created for the show in Moscow.

Invariably connected to the experience of understanding hidden and/or disappearing knowledge, Ismailova’s films, film essays, and video installations offer poetic, fragile, and subtle reflections that are a result of the artist’s many years of work in Central Asia: her archival research, travels, and interviews. While addressing the history of the region, Ismailova’s projects are universal messages that touch upon issues of collective memory, the search for roots, and the revival of cosmologies.

Curator: Iaroslav Volovod
