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.
