The first Russian show by the Malaysian artist Zulkarnain Ismail whose surrealistic photo manipulations earned him worldwide fame offers the viewers a glimpse into the contemporary art of Malaysia. Despite the rapid-fire pace at which the Asian art is advancing — so much so as to call forth speculations about the imminent relocation of the global cultural hubs eastwards — for the Russian viewer it still largely remains a terra incognita.
The world imagined by Zulkarnain Ismail is full of magic lurking in ordinary things: the crisp white bed sheet carelessly tossed away in the morning becomes a coral reef swarming with fairy-tale fish sure to grant any wishes; a drawer barely accommodates a mountain range with its peaks piercing the clouds; and the icing on the cake is actually a rocky seashore.
