Title: A Journey Through Vulnerability
Commissioner: Nomin Chinbat, Minister of Culture of Mongolia
Curators: Gantuya Badamgarav
Exhibitor: Munkhtsetseg Jalkhaajav
Munkhtsetseg Jalkhaajav represents Mongolia at the 59th Venice Biennale. Munkhtsetseg’s artistic practice explores the notion of pain, fear, healing and rebirth. Mainly reflecting her personal experiences, her works investigate the complexities of female bodies, minds and souls and the connection with oneself and nature while capturing the tensions between different realms. Seemingly fictional yet grounded, her unique works embody invisible forces, such as spirits, traditional healing methods and myths and tell sensible stories of women, unborn children, and the sorrowful fates of animals.
The exhibition presents sculptures, collages, video and sound works, spread across three different rooms titled “Miscarriage”, “Dream of Gazelle”, and “Pulse of Life”, offering the viewer a journey through the intimate, fragile, yet powerful world of Mugi.
