I am happy to announce the publication of ‘Bare House: Pori – Rotterdam – Ulaanbaatar’ (2011) which I translated from English to Mongolian. ‘Bare House: Pori – Rotterdam – Ulaanbaatar’  was a large scale and multi-layered international art project consisted of numerous exhibitions, residencies spanned over two years, showcased works of artists, curators and architects from Finland, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Canada and Mongolia. The publication is edited by Annu Wilenius, Visual artist, Curator and Doctoral Candidate from Finland who also curated the art project. The project has finalised in two-part (1st -7th August and 3d-11th October 2011) exhibition at the Zanabazar Fine Arts Museum in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia accompanied by the publication.
I admit that the Mongolian translation was an enormous challenge in terms of its complexity and the length (nearly 20.000 words). Many terms and phrases specific to contemporary art field had been translated into Mongolian for the first time. It took me nearly a year to finish the translation. To my current knowledge, the publication is only the third publication published both in English and Mongolian in the field of contemporary art.
The first publication both in English and Mongolian was a catalogue of a group exhibition titled ‘For You Mongolia’/'Монголд Зориулая’  (translated by Udval Sukhbaatar & Joakim Enwall, 2002) presented works of nine artists from Sweden shown at the Mongolian National Modern Art Gallery in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The second publication was another catalogue of an exhibition project titled ‘Odoo/Current’  (2006-2007, exhibition dates: 10th-30th April 2007) showcased works of twelve artists based in the UK at the Chingghis Art Gallery in Ulaanbaatar. I worked as the project manager, the translator and the co-coordinator along with fellow research student Juliet MacDonald. The exhibition catalogue was published in English and Mongolian with an introductory text by Curator Jill Morgan and translated by me.
Finally, I would like to thank Annu Wilenius for giving the opportunity to translate this wonderful publication and being incredibly patient with me while I was juggling to cope with numerous other ongoing projects.
Please see below for more detailed information about the publication. It is available for purchase from here.
Bare House is an exhibition exchange, a publication and an artist-in-residence project; an intensive, focussed experiment in the sharing of contemporary experience about dwelling and existence, a project which holds up a mirror to the architecture and urbanism of today and tomorrow.
Mongolia and the city of Ulaanbaatar – where pastoral nomadism and Soviet city planning are being eroded by chaotic ger districts and staggering tower-blocks – function as reference points in the project, along with the post-industrial cities of Rotterdam in the Netherlands and Pori in Finland.
