According to the Venice Biennale’s website, Munkhtsetseg Jalkhaajav will represent Mongolia. Many of Jalkhaajav’s works feature a human-crow hybrid that alludes to a traditional notion in Mongolian medicine that birds can represent a life force. In addition to her paintings, Jalkhaajav makes collages, which involve “sewing pieces of stretch fabric are an act of trying to create wholesomeness by putting together separate pieces, like repairing,” the artist has said. Perhaps in tribute to that idea, the pavilion, curated by Gantuya Badamgarav, will be titled “A Journey Through Vulnerability.”

Location: Calle S. Biasio, Castello 2131, 30122 Venezia
