The Sociopolitical "Dialogue" Tenzing Rigdol Presents In Delicate Creations

  • by The Cartellino Team

To create an accurate presentation of sacred beings and diagrams in the Buddhist culture, lines are drawn out. These lines are simply guides but for Tibetan diasporic artist Tenzing Rigdol, these are elements to his works that create the dialogue he has been opening up through his art. At a time when China asserts itself to Tibet, Rigdol displays a conflicting series of creations that are ironically presented as calm and resolute yet with every line shows conflict. The conflicts are countered by the serene idea that the lines refer to the carpet making process in Nepal, one his mother has been doing since then. In the show Dialogue, Tenzing Rigdol deconstructs the deities then weaves them together.
