Azerbaijan Pavilion
Biennale Arte 2024



...The exhibition has an intriguing title, a compendium of the titles of the works presented by the three artists – From Caspian To Pink Planet: I Am Here...

...Regardless of where a person happens to be – from the actual, harsh, everyday life in the oil fields of the Caspian Sea to the illusory, childlike and idealized Pink Planet, they always have the right to declare, I Am Here!
