Comunicato stampa

Mongolia’s first appearance at La Biennale di Venezia is initiated and organized by Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association (MCASA), chaired by Ms. Gantuya Badamgarav.Gantuya, who holds MA in Economics from Williams College, USA, and has a background in business, international project management, and nonprofit organizations, is also the founder of MCASA. Appointed as Commissioner by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of Mongolia, Gantuya assembled the Mongolia Pavilion organizing team, who include Curator Dr. Uranchimeg Tsultemin, an international adviser David. A. Ross, and a production adviser Dr. Boldbaatar Chultemin

The two artists who were selected and invited to represent Mongolia at Venice are Unen Enkh and Enkhbold Togmidshiirevin.The Mongolia Pavilion explores the ideas of modern-day mobility and displacement that raises questions about the notion of what and where the “home” is, and human’s relationship with nature. The artists work with organic, natural products from Mongolian nomadic traditions, such as felt, horsehair, horsedung, and wood. The Mongolia Pavilion consists of two types of art presentation: a sedentary pavilion space at Palazzo Mora and a nomadic pavilion with the artist Enkhbold’s performances shown at designated public spaces around the city of Venice. The two artists were born and raised in Mongolian countryside, and experienced migration as young adults when went to the art college in the capital city Ulaanbaatar. For Unen Enkh, the migration continued to Eastern Europe during the Cold War period, as he lived in Prague and Budapest, where he attended art schools. In 1988, he immigrated to Germany, thus becoming the first Mongolian artist to escape socialist regime. It is in here in Freiburg im Breisgau, where Unen Enkh’s art completely transformed from two dimensional graphic medium to sculptures, made with natural materials from his original homeland.
