curated by Anna Smolak
Emalin is pleased to present All That You See Here, Forget, Aslan Gaisumov’s first exhibition at the gallery, curated by Anna Smolak. This is the artist’s first solo project in the UK and will debut a new video work, Keicheyuhea, produced with support by the Han Nefkens Foundation, Barcelona. As part of a video installation, Keicheyuhea enters into dialogue with People of No Consequence (2016), produced by M HKA Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp.
Aslan Gaisumov (b. 1991) lives and works in Grozny, Chechnya. He graduated from the Institute of Contemporary Art ICA (Moscow, 2012) and and Higher Institute for Fine Arts HISK (Gent, 2017). Gaisumov is developing an oeuvre that feeds on, but also transforms and transcends, personal and collective memory. His works are poised between visual immediacy and social commentary; between the momentary and the monumental.
Anna Smolak is an independent curator based in Krakow, PL. She studied History of Art at Jagiellonian University, Krakow, and Cultural Diplomacy at Collegium Civitas, Warsaw. Her research engages with contemporary institutional critique and the examination of alternative modes of collaboration and organization. She has investigated the notion of locality, periphery and exclusion, with a particular focus on Eastern European and post-Soviet contexts.
