Kamal Mustafa: Hulutopia – Through The Looking Glass Into Promised Lands

HULUTOPIA was the second solo exhibition by Kamal Mustafa at Fergana Art Space. It featured new and past works of the artist that employed his digital-analogue hybrid approach to digital imaging, print, and painting on paper and canvas with video and projection.

The exhibition title is a portmanteau of the word Hulu, the Malay for source or beginning, and Utopia or -topos, a place. It is also the title of one of the works featured in the exhibition. Hulutopia, together with the Promised Land series, the Museum series and the artist’s other works, deals with the paradoxical manifestation of a dystopian world stemming from the idea of the promised land. They show that the projection of  a crystal clear vision of destiny or ultimate goal lies at the base of ideology, religious or secular.
