OTO ( Otgonbayar Tsogt is a London-based visual artist)


My works explore the relationship between our existence and all other things surrounding us. The matter of building up the body and the way in which it dissolves, its transformation to other forms depends on the interrelationship with its surroundings and the exchange and integration of the micro elements which help to structure body. 

The existence of everything is framed by the abstract concept of swapping its temporary body through this delicate balance.

My works explore this natural cycle by borrowing natural elements and reshaping and deconstructing them in very symbolic or abstract meaning.

This natural cycle is probably not in a clear line but is very twisted, tangled and knotted along a very long line yet each ends connect to each other in some way.

It fundamentally matches the shamanic and animist view towards nature and ourselves, a view to which my origin culturally connects.  As this conception also attracts me on an individual level.
