Desertification in Art group exhibition

XanaduART is pleased to present “Desertification in Art”, a collection of socially conscious works of art curated by the New Century Art association. The exhibition will be on display at the gallery through June 27, 2011.

“Desertification in Art” exhibition includes multimedia works by Enkhbat Lantuu, Amarsaikhan, Undraa Vandan, Batzorig Dugarsuren, Ariuntugs Tserenpil, Enkhbold Togmidshirev and XanaduART gallery curator Zesee Sodnomtseren. The artists seek to address the problem of desertification in Mongolia  through contemporary art and to show the bitter truth about land degradation caused by human activities.

Works exhibited are deeply rooted in the imagery of the Mongolian steppe and the everyday life of nomads – our culture, our customs, our philosophy and the Mongolian way of thinking. In doing so, the exhibition presents a mix of traditional and modern approaches to contemporary art.  The artists hope that their works will raise awareness about the environmental issues that Mongolia faces and encourage people to protect the Mother Earth.

This exhibition is organized by the New Century Art association in collaboration with XanaduART gallery, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and Ministry of Environment of Mongolia.

B. ENKHBAT: “Hidden universe” exhibition

September 15 – 27, 2006
Opening reception: September 15, 2006 at 5 p.m.

XanaduART gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by B. Enkhbat entitled “Hidden universe”. Enkhbat’s work is an interesting combination of Mongolian traditional paintings and installation pieces united under the collective theme of shamanism. The artist has spent considerable time researching the topic and has endeavored to depict his own vision of the shamanist ritual through his work. The name of the exhibition, “Hidden universe”, implies that we may not know much about the universe of hidden meanings that is shamanism. Mongolian painting, which was widely influenced by traditional Buddhist art, maybe considered a controversial medium for the subject, yet Enkhbat succeeds in imbuing his exhibition with a mysterious quality worthy of his subject.

B. Enkhbat was born in 1981 and graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts with a traditional Mongolian painting major in 2004. He has participated in most major student exhibitions, including “Student autumn” of 2003 and “Mongol look” of 2004.
