Discovering the Present from the Future: Mongolian Pavilion at the 60th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia
Venice, Italy
Avril 20 – November 24, 2024

The exhibition “Discovering the Present from the Future” by Ochirbold Ayurzana in the Mongolian Pavilion explores the profound levels of consciousness through interactive sculpture installations. Inspired by the Buddhist deity Citipati, these sculptures, including the three-eyed skull, serve as reminders of the impermanence of life, fostering spiritual transformation and symbolizing the search for higher consciousness and enlightenment in Buddhism.

In the digital era, Citipati can embody the transition to the digital age as a guardian of technology. Another interpretation sees Citipati as a guardian of the environment, pointing to challenges such as climate change. Their movements illustrate the fragile balance between nature and humanity. In collective dances, they symbolize bridge-builders between cultures, embodying the idea of global interconnectedness in the North and South, and collaboration in an increasingly intercultural world.

Its artistic contribution delves into the exploration of profound levels of consciousness by analyzing societal and human behavioural shifts in our globalized world from various artistic perspectives. This exploration is facilitated through the new sculpture installation titled “Discovering the Present from the Future” complemented by a depiction of the historic Citipati at the exhibition, and an ongoing series of sculpture installations titled “Discovering Consciousness.

The exhibition staging at Arsenale Castello 2127A, Campo de la Tana opposite the main entrance to the Biennale Arte at the Arsenale, creates a captivating space of transformation. Through the interactive installation, visitors are actively engaged in exploring the theme of “Stranger within Myself” and can interact and shape their own journeys of consciousness. By merging Buddhist wisdom with modern approaches, the artist aims to bridge the gap between the present and the future, providing thought-provoking insights and inspiring individuals to explore the present through the lens of the future.

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
