The visitors can enjoy not only the author’s selected works, but also some elements of traditional Chinese art and life.
Patimat Guseynova, the art director of Makhachkala ethnic culture center opened the exhibition. Having introduced the creative biography of Dagestan artist to the visitors, Guseynova told about the unique features of the works exhibited.
"The title “Made in China” as well as possible reflects the essence of the event. Within 10 years in China, Gabo imbued with a unique oriental culture, and it feels in every detail, "- Guseynova stressed.
Apart from 20 artworks, the exhibition also presents a collection gathered by the artist himself during his stay in China: calligraphy, artifacts, collectibles, furniture, etc.
"I tried to show the real China in my works and to bring home the most interesting things. I love Chinese culture. So, I managed to gather the collectibles that I laid my eyes on. Here is, for example, a wardrobe, made of ancient ships boards and on my sketches.
China is now perceived as the world's producing center, supplier of shops, but there is another side. There is a deep Chinese philosophy, a unique outlook that through calligraphy, painting and even household items transmits to the attentive viewer. I wanted Dagestanis to touch on this culture, to understand the mindset of the Chinese people with its history of more than five thousand years. I hope that the project will benefit a great many people and the viewers will enjoy the exhibition "- Gabibullaev noted.
