Sabina Kuangaliyeva

Born in 1994 in Atyrau, Kazakhstan, Kuangaliyeva categorizes herself as a post internet, post human, post-post-post artist with no particular borderline separating the act of living and the act of creating. Liberated from formal obligations she explores passivity, silence,and darkness contrasting with loud, colorful activism that seems to occupy the majority of space in the market-driven cultural processes. Instead of didactically employing the linear career strategies so common for the creative industry workers aka professional artists,Kuangaliyeva takes life easy and crops out the particles of pure being when the right opportunity occurs.

Kuangalieyva's recent exhibitions include Limited Liability Pavilion 4.0 in Alserkal Avenue in Dubai, Time and Astana in the National Museum of Kazakhstan in Astana as well as Eurasian Utopia: Post Scriptum in Suwon iPark Museum of Art in Suwon, South Korea. Kuangalieyva is also a prominent member of ORTA Center for Performative Art in Almaty,

Marat Dilman

is a young artist whose work explores visual codes and
patterns in relation to the nation-building processes, which he witnessed growing up in newly independent Qazaqstan. Dilman produces around six artworks per year, each with meticulous attention to detail and occasional digital image manipulation. His work is heavily concerned with how technology intervenes with the pre-modernistic archetypes such as ornaments, yurts, traditional clothing and elements of architecture.
Vivid colors so common to Dilman's visual language connect these long-lasting narratives with the presence of symbolic elements of modern-day urban anti-utopias: plastic, security cameras, robots, and pills.
Dilman's recent exhibitions include The Eurasian Utopia: Post Scriptum curated by Yuliya Sorokina in Suwon Ipark Museum of Art, South Korea (2018), Astana Art Show in Astana, Kazakhstan (2017), and Act of Creation group exhibition within the framework of ARTBAT FEST in Almaty, Kazakhstan (2017). Dilman was a winner of Halyk Art Prize.
