TOGUO´s work reflects the current global situation, with his specific, singular, authentic contribution conveying concrete, personal, precise, critical, hypersensitive - and often tabooed - spheres of perception, ranging from sexuality to violence, from cult and rites to allegorical representations. His artistic practice unfolds precisely in the very centre of contemporary political - and aesthetic - discourses, whereby his personal (hi)story, moving between the diverse cultural, social and political contexts on the one hand and the ethnic, national and religious communities on the other, directly determines his artistic actions, his aesthetic-ethical perspective, and respectively bolsters his legitimacy.
