Mountains have inspired throughout times. Apart from any commercial or agricultural utilization the mountain is a symbol for the superiority of nature, calm, stability and wisdom – close to the sky.

The project Мөрөн | The Mountain claims the mentoring of a specific mountain in Moron Sum, Mongolia. The mountain will not be modified in any way. The mountain is termed as a work of art. Commercial use of the mountain is not provided. The property provides open access for the general public.

The project is focused on finding and interpreting unclaimed or contested public space(s), and on reading the importance of the spatial relationship to both personal and shared cultural memory.

We are interested in a discussion about the relation of men and nature, claiming and ownership and the perspective of value and growth.

The artwork Мөрөн | The Mountain consists of a stock including all documents that describe the process of the dedication of the Mountain to Land Art Mongolia.

Уул нурууд улиран өнгөрөх цаг хугацааны турш гүн ухаан, сансрын төсөөллийг олгож ирсэн. Уул бол угтаа давуу байдлын бэлэг тэмдэг юм. Уул нам тайван дүнсийж давуу, хөдөлшгүй бат бөх байдал, тэнгэрт ойрхон байдгаараа билэг ухаан төгөлдөр байдлыг билэгддэг.
