Aida Mahmudova: Liminality
Gazelli Art House is pleased to present Aida Mahmudova’s new body of work in her debut solo show Liminality, curated by Alistair Hicks.
Commenting on her rapidly modernising country’s forgotten and marginal corners, Mahmudova uses art as an outlet to give a feeling of stability to co-exist in this unprecedented environment. Art gives no boundaries and opens to any communicational variations for the artist. In her new series of works, Mahmudova explains:
“It’s the artist and the medium. The never-ending relationship between me and the other resembles perpetual conversation. It takes full involvement from both sides. The act itself is the purest form of creation. This, in turn, gives you a unique opportunity to engage in authentic and unguarded communication with unfolding perspectives. It connects and unites us in the moment of now, giving versatile, unpredictable and beautiful outcomes.”
Aida Mahmudova is an Azerbaijani artist and founder of YARAT Contemporary Art Space in Baku. Her work has been exhibited internationally and uses a variety of techniques and media. Despite a varied practice, the artist’s main focus remains her exploration of material as a tool for experimenting with and navigating the world she inhabits.
