Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ An exhibition of Mongolian artists titled ‘A Temporality’ featuring different types of artworks and performances is stunning the audiences at the Venice Biennale.

Mongolian throat singers N.Ashid, D.Davaasuren, A.Undarmaa and Kh.Damdin are performing under the direction of renowned German musician Carsten Nicolai in the abstract space created by artist E.Jantsankhorol inside of an old brick building of Venice. The performance is a reflection of the inner voice of a person through combination of throat singing and electronic music. Art lovers were deeply touched by the unusual, unique composition and diversity of the performance. Influenced by the deep, calm but strong at the same time melody, some visitors were spotted meditating and even crying.

Mongolian pavilion is located on the streets of Calle del Forno, Venice. The pavilion curator B.Gantuya noted that there’s a long line of visitors interested in the exhibition. Combination of contemporary and traditional art has made our project unique, she emphasized.

More than 1000 artists from over 150 countries are participating in the Venice Biennale this year. Heads of state and government of several countries, over 20 thousand art experts, artists, collectors and art lovers gathered at the opening of the seven-month festival.

Opening of the country pavilion was attended by over 100 international curators and art experts. Ambassador of Mongolia to Italy Ts.Jambaldorj delivered opening remarks.

During the opening, Mongolian throat singers along with Carsten Nicolai were also invited to perform at the Palazzo Grassi for the high-level guests.
