The exhibition "Flight of a Blind Eagle" unites the symbiosis of nomadic, Soviet and capitalist culture and is a kind of presentation of the artworks created within the framework of the international project Nomadic Art Camp, which took place from 2011 to 2016 on the coasts of the mountain lakes: Issyk-Kul, Sary-Chelek, Son-Kul; and with subsequent exhibitions in Bishkek and mobile exhibitions in the Karakol, Jalal-Abad, Osh and Naryn. At the opening ceremony a jazz band called “Salt Peanuts” performed a synthesis of traditional music. Modern music was interwoven with komuz’s melody, sending viewers to national cultural roots and traditions.
Then the performance "Blind" was presented, it telling to the audience about freedom. The performance consisted of a burkutchu with a golden eagle with a black bandage on their eyes and they were in a cage. A black bandage on the eyes of a person is his own limitation or restriction of his own freedom by himself, a black bandage on the eyes of a golden eagle is a person's restriction of the freedom of the world around him and weaker in relation to him. A cage, a man and a golden eagle with a black bandage personify the movement of a person to Eternity and this is the choice.
