Especially for the exhibition, Olga Shurygina and the LOBBY team have collaborated with the Dulev Porcelain Factory to create a china tea-set collection decorated with images of characters from the book of fairy-tales. By blurring the lines between the real and the illusory, the archaic and the modern, alongside establishing a dialogue between traditional Russian craftsmanship and oriental folk motifs, the characters of the tales bring the viewer into a colorful land – the whimsical Shuzbekistan.
Another guidebook to the Oriental world and vivid addition to the solo exhibition of Olga Shurygina, Mosques: Splendors of Islam by Rizzoli is our this week's favourite. Striking archival photographs of such Islamic treasures as the Great Mosque of Córdoba and Istanbul’s Süleymaniye Mosque accompany scholarly reflections on the great Umayyad, Abbasid, Mamluk and Ottoman dynasties and immerse the readers in the very heart of Islamic art.
