Gallery@OURF presents MONGOLIA: AFFINITY 缘, an art exhibition showcasing our affinity with Mongolia.
In 2016, a group of child sponsors and volunteers with World Vision Singapore visited the children from the Area Development Programmes(ADP) in World Vision Mongolia in the Uvurkhangai Community. The trip has inspired this exhibition.
In this exhibition, we hope to use the medium of photography and Chinese ink painting to share the spirit of Mongolia – the land of blue skies and white clouds.
“Before visiting Mongolia in Oct 2016, I’ve known about the harsh weather and the difficult living conditions. Upon setting foot on Mongolian soil, I was swept away by the beauty of the nature reserve and the hospitality of the Mongolian people. But most of all I was intrigued by the uniqueness of the Mongolian calligraphy. I’ve also chosen to depict the iconic Ger, Bactrian Camel, Mongolian horses and the magnificent eagle through Chinese ink in order to tell their stories.
While doing research on Mongolia for this exhibition I was fascinated to find out that there is a Snow Leopard Trust which works in 5 of the 12 countries where snow leopards are found – China, India, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, and Pakistan. Collectively, these 5 countries contain over 75% of the world’s population of wild snow leopards.
It is my hope that this exhibition can create more appreciation for Mongolia while raising funds to help the children from World Vision Mongolia.
Together with my students, friends and fellow volunteers we hope our effort will resonate with you.”
