“İNSƏN” is an immersive project by CHINGIZ that shows different aspects of society through the prism of personal experience. A prototype artist’s studio and a live and continuously developing organism, the project represents an interactive exhibition interrogating the process of work. The main protagonist of the exhibition is the Individual that both lives and changes in tune with the times and their actions.
The artist uses sculptures and installations that serve as indicators of various situations to uncover this idea and show transformations, influences and side effects of the time. The exhibition focuses on the Individual and their surroundings, feelings, emotions, contrasts, and alternatives, highlighting the Individual’s core nature as a principal party to, and the driving force behind, all processes.
Autobiographical in nature, the artist develops the principle of personal space in a studio-like way and narrates the reality that surrounds him. The exhibition highlights the versatility of people but at the same time demonstrates that an individual does act the same way in recurring situations, hinting at their distinctive and inconsistent nature…
The show is dedicated to CHINGIZ’s father Tofig Babayev, who has inspired the artist in the most important way.
