SAULE DYUSSENBINA

She was born in 1971 in Karaganda, lives and works in Almaty.

The practice of Saule Dussenbina is interesting not only for the presentation of each project in itself, but also for its organic dynamics, which intersects several border-statements. The artist operates first with traditional mediums of drawing and painting, studying the subject world around her, her home, her body, her story and her memory. These studies gradually lead to the creation of assemblies, including not only painting and painted images, but also objects, photographic materials, textiles, natural objects and so on (Memory card, 2010). A complex palimpsest of collage projects turns into a palimpsest of generalizations that can not be articulated with simple narration. Dyussenbina makes a study that brings her to the questions of the formation of an archetype and its introduction into the structure of a multicultural culture of our time. To solve such a difficult problem, she chooses an exact medium - an area of applied design – the design of interiors, objects of everyday life and embodies her ideas in several series.
