Backslash is pleased to present a booth dedicated to the work of young Mongolian artist Odonchimeg Davaadorj. The walls, covered with a drawing of a line of mountains, reveal a starry night atmosphere whose blue color dominates the chromatic complex. This immersive installation offers a showcase to the characteristic drawings of Davaadorj.
Her works are inescapably incarnated by her attachment to the field of animal and plant species, inherited from her childhood in rural Mongolia. A strangeness emerges from these little worlds where each element (character, animal, house) blooms in a certain melancholy.They are often linked by a sewing thread whose intriguing nature amplifies the oneirism of the drawings. Her palette of colors intensifies the fragility of the thread, the primordial artery of her works. Excessively feminine, intense and carnal, her work formally claims the influence of Louise Bourgeois.
Born in 1990, Davaadorj graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paris-Cergy. Her work has been shown in particular at the Salon de Montrouge, Verrière Hermès in Brussels or CAC Meymac.
In 2013, she performed at the Palais de Tokyo. She has won several prizes, including the ADAGP at the Salon de Montrouge.
