“Art Splash Students’ project on stage costumes «Art Splash»
Curator: Gaini Mukhtarova
Collection Title: TUSKIYZ
Photo of costumes: Akzhol Bigul
The head of the project presented at the Biennale: Alma Syrbaeva
The collection includes three chapans with elements of the Kazakh national carpet “tuskyz”. The main idea of the collection is to renew the perception of old everyday things into something new and not traditional. It is the interweaving of old and new, culture and modernity. The elements of the carpet have been made in time and are one of the heritage of our family. If you delve into the details of the collection, you can notice the wear of the fabric, shadows, smell that can remind you of the village of your native land, your grandmother who embroidered these patterns with her own hands.
