The National Pavilion of Mongolia presents Lost in Tngri (Lost in Heaven) and brings together 5 artists who explore the urgencies of Mongolian contemporary society. The country is at a crossroads between its identity as a nomadic nation, with an important history of Shamanism and Buddhism, and a new economic reality of globalization where the use of natural resources threatens its very existence. Traditions of herding across vast and beautiful terrains with a life connected to nature, ancestry and the spiritual world is seen as heaven by many. Economic opportunity, created following the collapse of the socialist system in 1990, has opened the door to another type of heaven. Mining, construction, cashmere and other businesses have boomed creating wealth through the exploitation of the lands of their ancestors. But is the country disappearing between these two biospheres? Through film, installation, sculpture and sound, the artists from across generations, question Mongolia’s future.Participants: Chimeddorj Shagdarjav, Munkhbolor Ganbold, Enkhtaivan Ochirbat, Bolortuvshin Jargalsaikhan, Davaajargal TsaschikherCommissioner: Munkh-Orgil Tsend, the Minister of Foreign AffairsCurator: Dalkh-Ochir Yondonjunai Organizer: Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association Project Director: Gantuya BadamgaravArtistic Advisor: Tessa JacksonSupporters in Venice: Valorizzazioni Culturali and Arte Communications Sponsors: MIAT — Mongolian Airlines, Xac Bank, Erel Group, Monnis Group, Max Group, Shangri-La Ulaanbaatar LLC, Monre Insurance, Mahoney Liotta, Bats Urguu, Ard Daatgal and other private entities and individuals Location: Istituto Santa Maria della Pietà, Castello, Venice, ItalyOpening days: from May 13th to November 26th 2017, closed on Mondays (except May 15th, August 14th, September 4th, October 30th, and November 20th 2017)Opening hours: 10 am to 6 pmCONTACTS: Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association Email:; Phone: +39 324-9938-737; +976 9905-1127; +976 9405-1127URL: URL:
