Rosewood Bangkok Hotel
1 March – 31 May 2021
In celebration of International Women’s Day on 8 March, we at SAC Gallery are encouraging, supporting, and very delighted to introduce four female artists who’s career show high potential for growth and development. If tenderness, sensitivity, simplicity, and vulnerability are considered common attributes of women, this exhibition, “Herspective” reflects the converse side womanhood with its display of determination of wisdom.
Within the contemporary art scene of Thailand there are many talented and promising artists. Thidarat Chantachua, Praiya Ketkool, Thanathorn Suppakijjumnong and Aor Sutthiprapha are our representatives among them. Each one of them has their own unique practice for creating but share through lines of continuity in their innovation and personal narratives.
Chantachua is a specialist in using thread to create her unusual artworks drawing on harmonious dynamics between Thai culture and her Islamic faith. The continuously and precisely arranged thread woven into the surface of the work convey an unseen-able connection between all Muslims. In the artist’s imagination distances are an illusion and religious identity knows no international boundaries. Ketkool uses the technic of re-arranging the small line of grasses and leaves. An immense effort with tiny objects utilizing a sharp paintbrush to create compositions speaking touniversality of nature.
Suppakijjumnong uses a rare antique typewriter to create her contemporary artworks and illustrate her family dynamics. This latest piece from Suppakijjumnong has taken a different direction, through the exploration of contemporary political issues in Thailand. The series ‘Together’ uses the same typewriter technique on high quality Awagami paper from Japan and shows the viewer the now every-present image of a medical face mask, coupled with strong and determined eyes of the figures. Sutthiprapha journey inward as a person to develop herself allows her art practice to develop in parallel. Her latest work when viewed from one perspective is an elegantly simple cylinder, however when the viewer changes their angle it can be seen as folded paper. Using Thai clay these sophisticated and yet strong works reflect her character, personhood, and ambitions.
If ‘perspective’ means ‘perceptions’ to the other things in truly deep natural understanding, this “Herspective” exhibition tells a different ‘spective’ through the talent and uniqueness of four ‘hers’.
The exhibition is on display from 1 March – 31 May 2021 at Art Connection (BTS Ploenchit Exit 1), 3rd floor, Rosewood Bangkok Hotel, Ploenchit Rd., Bangkok. More inquiries, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. +662 258 5580 ext. 401.
