Nomin Zezegmaa (DE/MN) is a Berlin based multidisciplinary artist, designer, researcher and writer.
In her work, theory and practice deviate along a spectrum of elusive matter and non-matter by employing and exploring immaterial entities, digging into non-linear histories, embodied and experienced memory. The often sculptural and tactile works find fluid expression in an amorphous multiplicity of medium and material, where applied and unapplied arts meet on equal ground—with the urgency to blur and diffuse the rigid borders and boundaries between art, design, crafts and histories.
Thus the question of objecthood make transmutation, ambiguity and shape-shifting inherent signifiers in the mythopoeic story-telling of her practice through which she operates as a mediator and connector between realms of an ancient past, diasporic non-localities and Mongol cosmology—to imagine, fiction and speculate other potentialities, futures & world(beings).
