Edward George Lloyd "The Tears Of A Setting Sun. A Tale Of Tenganism, Gold And Textiles"

In his work, Edward extends the traditions of the nomadic tribes of Mongolia to the present conditions, and expresses the current environment through a series of contemporary artefacts that work with the shifting temporal notions of technique and production. Traditional architectural representation is transposed to that of the object, and in doing so acts as a prototype for the rewriting of a cultural identity and a bridge between the traditional canons of architecture and cultural studies, while at the same time working with the dichotic relationship that runs through the veins of Mongolia, the palimpsest of permanence and time. Most importantly, his work serves as a paradigmatic example of how cultural values can be re-established within the nomadic communities of contemporary Mongolia.
