Click to enlargeHER SHEY QAYIDACAQ
Jan 26 - Mar 10, 2018
We are delighted to present her shey qayidacaq(1) a highly anticipated group show featuring Central Asia's leading contemporary and modern artists, including Mikayil Abdullayev, Gennadiy Brijatyuk, Aida Mahmudova and Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich. The first show to exhibit works from the region since the gallery’s inception in 2003, Gazelli Art House examines national identity, tradition and history through this exceptional oeuvre. Located between East and West, the works combine tradition and folklore with an array of genres and techniques, adding to a unique contemporary art discourse.
(1) her shey qayidacaq translates to what comes around, goes around in Azeri, in reference to the cyclical patterns of history and its effect on regional development and national identity.

JAMES OSTRER : JOHNNY JUST CAME
Jun 8 - Jul 22, 2018
In 2016 world-renowned curator Azu Nwagbogu invited James to show his 2014 Wotsit All About series in Lagos, Nigeria. Naturally, Nwagbogu expected Ostrer to come along with his fetishised junk food portraits that had warned the west of over-consumption. Ostrer’s reaction in his own words was, “instant excitement for an ambition I never knew I had. However, this quickly turned into nervousness and suspicion”. He states, “I experienced perfectly and more clearly than ever before how the pervasive impact of racial cultural conditioning towards otherness affects us in terms of human divide through fear.” Even while aboard the plane to West Africa, the flight attendant amplified this sense of worry, warning him of the dangers of Lagos, explaining that the airline staff only travelled under armed guard.
