Alcaston Gallery in partnership with curator Grace Partridge of Antidote Organisation are thrilled to present a solo exhibition by Kawita Vatanajyankur in November 2018. The exhibition will present a continuation of Kawita's commissioned work for the inaugural Bangkok Biennale.

Thai artist Kawita Vatanajyankur's work has been described as "alluring, thought-provoking and centred on making visible the invisible workforce with an acute sense of social justice”. Vatanajyankur creates works that offer a powerful examination of the psychological, social and cultural ways of viewing and valuing the continuing challenges of women’s everyday labour. In her staged performances, Vatanajyankur undertakes physical experiments that playfully, often painfully, test her body’s limits - a challenge that is both unavoidably compelling and uncomfortable to watch. The alluring, luminous colours in Vatanajyankur’s work are distinctive of the artists' aesthetic and tap into a globalized and digitally networked visual language of consumption and instant gratification.
