‘UNDER THE AEGIS OF TENGRI’
NOMINZIGGY (Fine Arts)
Touching upon sources and topics from a Mongolian heritage in contrast to a European upbringing, NOMINZIGGY explores the physical properties and tactile qualities of materials in relation to the body, the non-human, and the mind. The core of the work is the Mongolian traditional garment, the deel, and triggered by its wide array of function and use. The essential aspect of this garment is its implementation in shamanistic rituals. In modern-day Mongolia shamans are gatekeepers, operating as mediators and messengers between the realm of the perceived world and worlds with which we are unable to interact, communicate, and touch – those beyond our conception.
