International Festival Kino Der Kunst 2013
The jury is impressed by Almagul Menlibayeva's "Transoxiana Dreams"

Almagul Menlibayeva, Transoxiana DreamsAlmagul Menlibayeva, Transoxiana Dreams, KAZ 2011, HD Video, Duration: 23 min.

The jury is impressed by Almagul Menlibayeva's personal and intimate vision of everyday life in an environmentally damaged landscape, mixed with nomadic shamanesque revival through punk and surreal staged tableaux vivants 

Transoxiana Dreams, a mixture of documentary and fairy tale, illustrates the dramatic environmental changes in the Aral region as seen through the eyes of a fisherman's young daughter. One day, her father leaves to look for the lake and new fishing grounds. On his way through the desert he meets bizarre creatures, half horse, half human: a tribute to the nomadic past of his people.

Almagul Menlibayeva, born in 1969 in Kazakhstan, studied photography at the Academy for Art and Theatre in Almaty. She lives in Berlin and Kazakhstan. She participated in the Sydney Biennale, 2012. Solo exhibitions since 2007 included a.o.: Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden; Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst, Antwerp; Galerie Albert Benamou, Paris; Priska C. Juschka Fine Art, New York.
