‘Shell’

By M.OYUNGEREL

Fashion designer B. Dulguun asks the question, “Can clothes reveal an identity, or transmit feelings and information when they’re not being worn?” in her solo exhibition “Shell”, which is open through March 4 at 976 Art Gallery.

B.Dulguun received the Grand Prix award for Grand Art 5, a competition held in 2013 between Mongolian and Korean artists. She has been awarded Best Designer at Vision 2010, a fashion contest held in Ulaanbaatar. A 2015 finalist for the Hempel Fashion Award in

Beijing, and a finalist for the 47th Japan International Fashion Design Contest in Tokyo, she has participated in various exhibitions abroad, including the U.S., Germany, France, and Nepal.
B.Dulguun utilizes elements such as cotton, canvas, wood, metal ornaments, synthetic fibers, and metallic thread in her works. The hall is filled with colorful installations that provoke thoughts about identity obtained through clothes.
“The transparency of synthetic fibers captures my idea that the person wearing the clothing is still human, and that these clothes we use as shells are not as important,” the artist said.

She divides one of her works into two different parts: one side is a linen canvas with patterns drawn in blue ink, and the other side is dark blue cotton. “We are all related. For instance, I don’t know you, but we are related in some way. The blue cotton and blue pattern on the other side show the correlation,” said B.Dulguun.
In the hall are questions for viewers in both Mongolian and English. A person becomes a transmitter of emotions and information, and in one way, becomes relative to clothes when they’re wearing them. But can clothes convey a message when they’re not worn? The artist

doesn’t try to answer this question herself, but leaves the question to the viewer.
