Hibernating Tattoos Guarding the Sweat of the Sun

Richard Taittinger Gallery is honored to present Hibernating Tattoos Guarding the Sweat of the Sun, the first major solo exhibition in the United States of Mongolian artist, Tuguldur Yondonjamts.

With recent group exhibitions at the Sculpture Center, New York and Para Site, Hong Kong, and an upcoming show at the Drawing Center, New York, Yondonjamts’ multi-disciplinary works are reaching new grounds. While most recognized for his works on paper, his practice has expanded into the arena of performative, sculptural, and video art.

Yondonjamts studied traditional Mongolian and Tibetan Buddhist Thanka painting in Ulaanbaatar, as well as Fine Arts in Berlin and New York. He adapts this praxis in tandem with Asianic materials for drawing, such as the resin, dragon’s blood. His work is a visual manipulation of his classical training against his research-based art practice. For him, the process of his scientific and mystical studies is as important as the artistic output. He presents both real, imagined, and interpreted landscapes, tracing the coexistence between the tamed and untamed world.
