Mongolian artist D.Bulgantuya artist yet again proved her distinguished artistic prowess and talent with her latest exhibition “Bulgaa Contemporary Art” which supports Augmented Reality (AR) technology.
A handful of artworks displayed at the exhibition, launched at Best Art Gallery, allow people to interact with art and get a glimpse into D.Bulgantuya’s inner world using Artivive App to make objects in the art augment into reality using computergenerated perceptual information. This is the first time an exhibition was designed with the use of AR in Mongolia and became a huge hit as soon as it opened. Visitors only had compliments and praises for the artist.
My favorite pieces were “Heaven and a Dream of a Myth” painted in oil paint that showed a woman with closed-eyes and hovering in one place with her white wings, “Spring-2” which actually reminded me of autumn, unlike its title, when seen through AR because of the warm color combination that consisted mostly of orange, and another oil painting “Soar“, which was painted in only red and black. It resemble a bud blossoming into a flower while at the same time, made it seem like I was traveling through another dimension or slowly getting swallowed into a black hole.
The exhibition was unforgettable because the artwork reminded me of the moving photographs in the “Harry Potter” series, my childhood favorite film.
However, the use of AR in art wasn’t the only thing that was impressive. The talented female artist demonstrated her unique perception of the world using a very fun and vibrant color scheme and a multitude of mediums. Without a doubt, D.Bulgantuya is a talented artist writing a new chapter in the history of Mongolian contemporary art.
D.Bulgantuya also partnered with State Merited Music Composer S.Soronbold to create music for her art to help better deliver the experience she wanted the audience to feel.
The exhibition is open through September 20.
