Tuguldur Yondonjamts

2015 Residency: January through June

Tuguldur-YondonjamtsMy work is research and information based. I use investigational logic to create large scale drawings that diagram imaginary journeys. These explorations deal with issues such as the origin of materials or resources, relocation and collision of crossing different timeline, myth and travel. My works questions how these factors are played out in physical and psychological space, and between tamed and untamed worlds.
