August 16 – 22, 2006
Opening reception: August 16, 2009 at 6 p.m.

XanaduART gallery is pleased to present “Resonance”, a joint exhibition by ceramics artists N. Sukhburen and U. Odmaa featuring ceramic works and sculpture. Both artists have graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts with a ceramics major, and have participated in multiple exhibitions in Ulaanbaatar. The exhibition showcases more than 20 sculptures, 10 ceramics wall decoration and 2 installation works. Almost all of the sculptures presented depict a lonesome female figure, which is a recurring theme throughout the exhibition. Sukhburen and Odmaa have taken their ceramics background to a new level by incorporating many different elements into their exhibition: Sukhburen’s freely executed sculptures are complimented by Odmaa’s ceramic paintings, while the atmosphere of fragility and frailty is accentuated by Sukhburen’s highly original installations. During the exhibition, the gallery has organized a lecture on ceramics and invited our viewers to experiment with the medium.
