About the work
"Qublai did not forget he was a Mongol.
He is said to have had a patch of steppe grass in the garden of
his palace in Peking as a reminder of his origins".
Based on a chapter of Mongolian history, the artist had a patch of artificial grass brought from the capital city to the camp. Cut in a circle according to the dimensions of a traditional Mongolian yurt, the patch of grass was used as a stage for a karaoke party, a playground for the children and as the artist refers: her very own piece of land. The Oasis is exhibited as an installation including the patch of grass and found animal bones.
