Mongolian artist Battur Tsedenpil showcases his latest works at Art Space 976+ in a solo exhibition entitled “Timeless” from June 25 to August 6, 2019.
“Timeless” features the portraits of 13 modern Mongolian in a unique 20th century time-lapse. By juxtaposing modern women against traditional centuries old clothing and backdrops, Ts. Battur aimed to underline the persistent nature of women which is inherited regardless of time, context and background and as such is inherently “timeless”.
As an artist, Ts. Battur has worked for over a decade trying to capture inner feelings of women. Artistically, he blends European painting techniques with traditional Mongolian. Such techniques include “Zumber” which can easily be identified in his works exhibited in “Timeless”, in the way he renders women’s jewelry, gold, silver corals and pearls – effortlessly embodying them.
Since 2001, the artist has boasted an impressive career with dozens of solo and joint exhibitions held at premier art galleries and museums across Mongolia, including the Zanabazar Museum of Fine Art, the Choijin Lama Temple Museum, the Mongolian Modern Art Gallery, Art Gallery of the Union of Mongolian Artists, Xanadu Gallery, 976 Gallery and more. Ts. Battur has also participated in several international exhibitions and biennales, including the International Workshop “Muong’s land 2nd & Asia Art Link 4”, the 6th Beijing International Art Biennale, “Nord Art 2016” International Art Exhibition in Düsseldorf, the International Art Exhibition in Beijing, the “Colors of Siberia” International Exhibition in Russia and the joint Mongolia, Korea and Japan Exhibition in Tokyo.

Battur’s notable achievements and prizes include, first prize under the category of “Realist Genre” for the “Eurasia-Art” international exhibition in Irkutsk, top prize in the Annual Mongolian Artists-Teachers “Oron Zai” Exhibition, best young teacher of the Mongolian State University of Arts and Culture, and “Juukh” credentials of distinguish from Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Sports of Mongolia.
