Eurasian Cultural Alliance is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Ambujerba who lives and works in Almaty. The exhibition takes place is a small studio-like space and consists of paintings, ceramics, gypsum and wooded sculptures as well as papier mache objects made between 2018 and 2021.
Ambujerba belongs to the generation of young artists born in 1990s. His often figurative paintings recycle and deconstruct a wide spectrum of themes: from soviet 'solar-fences' to vaginas, mouthes, hats, firearms, and household objects. This particular way of reflecting upon everyday reality exists under the influence of the language developed through animation and cartoons with which every millennial child has unavoidably interacted.
Besides a seemingly naive artworks Ambujerba explores rather mature world of eros and logos. This exploration is not limited with immediate reflections on the external world, but on the contrary, grows deep into the intimate experiences of the artist and his perception of life. Ambujerba explains his art as a nostalgia for the long-gone sense of miracle.
The artist claims that he was once able to perform miracles and that this quality fades away as he grows. Today, he attempts to re-learn this set of skills by producing art.
If to draw an analogy with the Plato's cave the viewer sees only the shadows of Ambujerba's wandering while logic of a one room solo show is constructed in a way that the viewer can experience world through the optics of a lost childhood miracle.
