The Rope

The Rope is an action that involves young men and a tree in a nonsensical expenditure of effort. The image recalls, ironically, the labour scene of the paintings in socialist realism style where people used to be portrayed during their daily working activities. The work questions the puzzling relationship between the traditional nomadic way of life and the history of Mongolian communist regime.

The artist is in particular interested in connecting to the collective ownership of land and production facilities trying to figure out how two apparently different systems of social organisation could work together.
