KAWITA VATANAJYANKUR AT THE DUNEDIN PUBLIC ART GALLERY

Kawita Vatanajyankur's solo exhibition Performing Textiles is on display at Dunedin Public Art Gallery from 5th May 2018 - 26th Aug 2018. 

In her video-based performances Kawita Vatanajyankur (b.1987, Thailand) uses her own body as a tool, exploring and exploiting her physical and psychological limits through repetitive actions and endurance. Her practice, underpinned by her position as a Thai woman, is predicated on an ongoing interest in issues surrounding everyday labour – both inside and outside of the home. This area of ongoing research has seen Vatanajyankur bring domestic chores and gender binaries, working conditions and social ideologies, and industrial processes to the fore. These research threads are then translated into a concept that presents a direct challenge to the artist – can she symbolically and literally become the object or tool in question? Can her body be used as an artifact?

For more information on the exhibition please visit the Dunedin Public Art Gallery's website.

Alcaston Gallery is thrilled to be curating a solo series of works by Kawita later this year from the 17 October - 10 November 2018.
