ADYR-ASPAN, Astana Kazakhstan
«AQ dala» video art performance, 2024

video producer: Almas Maksut, Kazakhstan

The art group ADYR-ASPAN presents a conceptual art performance «AQ Dala». The show involves seven women dressed in traditional Kazakh dresses who perform in the heart of Saryarka steppe. The dancers’ movements convey traditional motifs of the land where they grew up. Leaving the prints of the steps in the shape of the pattern named tekemet, they form the shape of the ship horns that represents the wellbeing and wealth. In nomad times, the creation of tekemet was a common activity that put all people together.

The Kazakh artists group has been founded in 2011 in Almaty, Kazakhstan. The first interpretation stands for a union of earth and heaven – as the evidence of two worlds. The second interpretation stands for the plant, that grows in the steppe and has very long roots. These plant’s qualities symbolize the Kazakh native population, known for a strong character. The leaders of the artists group Alya Kanibekova, Natalya Litay and Gulmaral Tatybayeva are multimedia artists known for their paintings, photography, art installations, video art and art performance in their home country and abroad.
