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-Australian 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.

Alcaston Gallery is thrilled to present a major exhibition of paintings and ceramics from the APY Art Centre Collective, a trailblazing organisation that comprises of entirely Indigenous owned and governed art centres working out of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands) located in remote Central Australia in the far northern tip of South Australia. This exhibition highlights the diversity of individual emerging and senior artists currently working at APY Lands art centres. The artists draw on their traditional Anangu knowledge of land and law each with a unique interpretation of their country and culture, ranging from vibrant colour to subtle monochromes, from striking compositions to intricate detail, to achieve a highly sophisticated and contemporary aesthetic.

Thank you to the artists and staff and board of the participating art centres for their support and assistance in the preparation of this exhibition: Ernabella Arts, Iwantja Arts, Mimili Maku Arts, Tjala Arts and the APY Art Centre Collective.
