Kazakhstan-born, Singaporean artist looks at nature through the eyes of mythology and poetry. Bamboos, rustic benches, butterflies, and water lilies… you won’t be able to see them the same way again.
- “Nature of Art” art exhibition & book launch by Inessa & Alice Kalabekova (The Fullerton Hotel Singapore)
- Inspired, curated & initially exhibited at Singapore Botanic Gardens (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
- Unique perspective on familiar scenes of Singapore nature. Bamboo, banana trees, butterflies, leaves, birds, flowers, and water lilies are not just decorative elements, or a backdrop to a peaceful walk. For the artist, they are animated entities, and each bush or branch can be the hiding place of a mythological creature.
- Mother & daughter collaboration: art by mother & poems by 12 y.o. daughter
SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 6 March 2023 – Griness presents Inessa Kalabekova’s solo exhibition in Singapore, called “Nature of Art,” from March 1 to March 31, 2023. Here the artist explores the sights and secret corners of Singapore’s parks and gardens, through the medium of painting and collage. Each painting is in a dialogue with the poems of Alice Kalabekova, Inessa’s young daughter, a burgeoning writer in her own’s right. A book, specially published for the exhibition, will comprise both the artworks and the poems, as well as sketches and photographs.
