Jerūiyq: Viaggio Oltre l’Orizzonte

About This Project

The Republic of Kazakhstan proudly presents its second pavilion with the “Jerūiyq: Journey Beyond the Horizon” exhibition at the Biennale Arte 2024. This exhibition, located at the historic building of the Museo Storico Navale, offers a modern interpretation of the ancient legend of Jerūiyq, inspired by Kazakh legends and the visionary journey of XV-century philosopher Asan Kaigy.

Commissioned by Aida Balayeva, the Minister of Culture and Information, and curated by Danagul Tolepbay with co-curator Anvar Musrepov, the exhibition reflects Kazakhstan’s commitment to cultural heritage and artistic innovation.
“Jerūiyq: Journey Beyond the Horizon” aligns with the Biennale Arte 2024 main theme “Stranieri Ovunque – Foreigners Everywhere”, curated by Adriano Pedrosa, focusing on the concept of the “Other” and diverse cultural narratives.

Jerūiyq: Journey Beyond the Horizon at the Biennale Arte 2024 presents a visionary future where human and non-human entities converge in a reimagined utopia. In our era of postcolonial world status and geopolitical turbulence, mass migration has emerged as a persistent trend. This calls for the reimagining of narratives that have been invisible. This exhibition invites visitors to explore portals into imaginative worlds, space flights, futuristic rituals, and the intersection of topology and algorithms. Showcasing art from Kazakhstani artists since 1979, it reflects the evolution of utopian thought, decolonial futurism, spirituality, modernism, and cosmism. Join us at the historic Maritime Museum for the opening reception of “Jerūiyq: Journey Beyond the Horizon”, a transformative exhibition that redefines art, culture, and imagination, celebrating Kazakhstan’s rich heritage in a global context.
