Traditionally, Ovoo (Mongolian ceremonial stone cairns which is usually built on top of mountains) is related to spirituality, shamanism and an act of worshipping; a way to communicate with spirits of mountains or rivers. The artists are using “Ovoo” as a metaphor for human cluster caused by rapid migration and the state of contemporary lifestyle in the large cities as a consequence. Through this performance, they create a sensorial experience of the outcry from nature.
