Description

A Temporality. This unique cross-disciplinary project marks the third appearance of Mongolia at the Venice Biennale, and features the sculptural installations of Los Angeles-based artist Jantsankhorol Erdenebayar, and an interactive sound performance by traditional Mongolian throat singers, accompanied by guest artist Carsten Nicolai, known as Alva Noto. The idea for the project is based on ‘experimental sound-making traditions’ that have been practiced by Mongolian nomads for centuries as a way to communicate with their inner selves and surrounding nature. Techniques of such oral expressions have acquired unique and complex forms and are registred by UNESCO as intangible cultural heritages.
