AKHP Public Lecture, Khorog: Coexistence of the Past and the Present in Artistic Images in Tajik Badakhshan
November 17th, 11:00 am
“With all my heart I love the mountains, the land, the rivers and the trees of my Motherland”. With these wonderful words, the artist shares his perception of the nature that surrounds him, and of the stunning landscapes of his homeland. The artist looks at everything with his heart, transferring to the canvas the wonderful, beautiful and good things that surround us, but we fail to notice. Alinazar Mavlonazarov’s paintings feature diversity of the environment and the harmony between the nature and human beings – slow flow of water that brings hope to a village, glance of a Pamiri girl who knots jurabs (traditional socks).
Using paintings, the lecturer will discuss some social changes and changes in the values of people, caused by past and present processes in Tajikistan, particularly in Badakhshan.
In 1969, Alinazar Mavlonazarov graduated from M. Olimov Art School in Dushanbe, and started working for an art-theatre in Rushan Rayon. In 1982, he was offered a job with the Art Fund of Kurgan-Tube. He has participated in numerous national and international exhibitions in Russian, China, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan. Alinazar Mavlonazarov has created more than 100 paintings that help to maintain connections between present and future generations.
