Eriko Tsogo, a Mongolian American artist and cultural producer, melds visual art, film, and socially-engaged projects. Her work explores the complex space of a first-generation Mongolian American woman straddling Eastern and Western cultures, delving into themes of identity, culture, and the concept of home. The ENTEREXIT PROJECT prompts viewers to reconsider movement: through a collection of short digital animations, Tsogo collaborates with immigrant leaders to bring their stories to life within immersive three-dimensional sculptures, crafting a boundary-blurring exploration of mixed migration narratives and the choices immigrants and refugees make regarding home and departure, shedding light on contrasting aspects of the American immigration system and showcasing individuals' resilient pursuit of a borderless existence.
Tsogo has shown work at the Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, NH; the Contemporary Mongolian Art Biennial, Washington, D.C.; Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Redline Contemporary Art Center, Center for Visual Art, Metropolitan State University of Denver, all CO; and Art Basel Miami Beach, FL. She received a “Juuh” Honorarium from the Mongolian Ministry of Education Culture and Science, an Alliance for Artist Communities Fellowship, and a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant. She is one of the creators of Mongovoo Temple at Meow Wolf Denver. Tsogo has held residencies at Platteforum Artist Residency, Currier Museum, and Fountainhead. She holds an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. She is represented by Tappan Collective.
