A painter of Mongolian Traditional Painting, I grew up in Denji Grassland, East Sunid Banner of Shinliingol League, Inner Mongolia. Moving back and forth between the countryside and the city,I enjoy a special rhythm that provides ideal conditions and ample possibilities for painting. What we find around us, from articles of daily use, either contemporary or passed down from ancient times, chests, skylights, etc., never lacks elements of Mongolian traditional paintings, decoration patterns, and distinctively Mongolian_styled designs, all with strong Mongolianflavor. Also there are orally inherited stories, legends, and folk culture, which, all highlysymbolic, have all been well kept until today. The reality of Mongolian traditional painting brings me the realization that these paintings are not simply something for show on the wall in a museum or an art space because they can also be a medium to bring changes to the definition or traditional ideas about Mongolian traditional painting. In other words, they can be produced and displayed in a real_life context, like the open air, the prairie and our everyday space so that they can be enlivened enough for the viewers to interpret the artworks with freedom, allowing more space for the understandingand imagination in regard to the artworks. Th is is what I try to realize in my practice.
acrylic,White silk cloth,
Artist's studio in HuhHot, 2021
I spent over a month in my studio in Hohhot painting on the white silk (300×600cm) the nomadicscenes, the painting part of “My Space”. Then I returned to my home on Dengji Grassland, which is 693km from Hohhot. I covered the horse with this piece of white silk. The horse, standing quietly on the lush grassland, looking into the distance, listening to and feeling the tranquil world around, adds some dynamic elements to the otherwise motionless surroundings. I also made a video of it, thereby altering the visual space of the geography with the field the white silk produced.
The grassland, totally different from my studio in the city, brings more extrasensory perception and creative energy accompanied by the spiritual resonance and empathy that arises unknowingly.These elements, more accessible, more linked with the spiritual world, thus become part of the world of knowledge I’ve been pursuing. They are also about my understanding of the time and space, which can give full, faithful expression to my inner world of sincerity and simplicity.

Initiator: Qin Ga (Chyanga) Time: June 2020 - June 2021 Site: Anywhere Host organizer: Rhizomic Space Nomadism involves political structures and living mechanisms nomads formed over years in their production and life. Along with the evolution of human history and civilization, this pattern of culture has offered the world a different cultural perspective. With a dynamic structure, it is in an ongoing process of changing or crossing the established boundary. The contemporary aspect of nomadism, in the overwhelming context of globalization, has penetrated our daily life and led to structures with differentiated values, which may help to restructure the world.
To an individual, mobile physical experience and sense-based perception are very important in breaking the conventional cognitive pattern. The contemporary practice in nomadism covers a wide range, from history and culture to nature and life style, in which field, everyone has unique experience and understanding. This art project brings different individual events together to show the possible values of the contemporary nomadic structure. The artists to be invited will choose freely when and where to carry out this “Nomad” project. Any medium is acceptable, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, installation, performance, video, sound, music, dance, etc. The place can be everywhere, no matter it is a prairie, a desert, a mountainous region, a city, or even the cyberspace. “Go Nomadic Together” is intended as an open “nomadic” art experiment and a collection of individual cases as well .
