Delve into the mystical world of Inessa Kalabekova at the Music Box Museum, Singapore, from 2 December. Inspired by the ancient Chinese story of the four dragons, Inessa's latest exhibition is a mesmerizing blend of mythical narratives and the whimsical charm of musical boxes.

The opening event on 2 December, from 3 pm to 6 pm, will be a cultural spectacle featuring a music performance and the unveiling of a breathtaking 7-meter-long scroll adorned with 15 dancing dragons. This exhibition draws inspiration from the “Classic of Mountains and Seas,” a text that traces the origins of Chinese geography and mythical creatures.

Inessa's art, deeply rooted in her Kazakh heritage and enriched by her multicultural experiences, creates a unique cultural fusion. The family’s involvement, particularly her daughter Alice, adds a personal touch, weaving together storytelling and artistic creation.

The nearby Thian Hock Keng Temple's architecture, adorned with dragons and phoenixes, complements the exhibition's theme. Inessa and Alice's dragon stories and portraits offer a glimpse into parallel worlds, where each piece narrates its own unique story.

Don't miss the opportunity to meet Inessa on 9, 16 December, and 13, 20 January, from 11 am to 3 pm. Discover this enchanting blend of cultures and mythologies at the Music Box Museum, located at 168 Telok Ayer Street, Singapore.
