LIVES AND WORKS BETWEEN BROOKLYN, NY and ULAANBAATAR, MONGOLIA
Tuguldur Yondonjamts (b. 1977) is a Mongolian artist who works primarily on paper, but has expanded his practice to video and installation art. His work is very much dependent on research and careful analysis of certain environments and materials. By using investigational logic, he is able to create large scale drawings and diagrams, representing imagined journeys. The nomadic culture of Central Asia is critical to interpreting Yondonjamts’s work. For him, these are symbolic endeavors, studying the issues affecting Mongolia’s society and economic development.
“My desire and focus in my works is to use facts, and to create endless narrative or mystery. Time is also a very important element to me, and I try to have it feature somehow in my drawings or in my works.”
