THE LAND AND TIME WHERE HORSES RUN FREE: Creative thinkers stay in a nomadic Kyrgyz yurt and travel to well-known, local, natural attractions to research this multi-ethnic country – in which the setting itself is an artistic muse with its amazing nature, rich history, spirituality, culture and biological diversity, encompassing traditional nomadic culture, shamanism, holy places, fauna and flora in a post- soviet setting.
Shaarbek Amankul is an artist who created the artistic research project Nomadic Camp to communicate with nature, heritage, culture, diversity and art, using traditional practices and a nomadic way of life as a source of inspiration for contemporary art practices on the shores of two alpine lakes, Issyk-Kul and Son- Kul, in the Tien Shan Mountains on the Great Silk Road.
