FERAL is a progressive, overlapping exhibition program of over 60 artists that will be open Friday - Sunday 11-5pm between 9 January - 8 February 2015. Its five opening events are Fridays 9, 16, 23 + 30 January and 6 February at 6-8pm, each of which will show the work of a different combination of about twenty artists. FERAL is designed for artists to experiment with installation or location of artwork in an architectural space that is already altered by the earlier installation of other artists' work, and which will be altered again when another group replaces that earlier installation. The FERAL project is part of the broader Articulate interest in the relationships artworks form with their locations. It does this by focusing in particular on the contribution that the changing installations of artwork make to the constitution of a site.
Phaptawan Suwannakudt There, There 2014
When Phaptawan’s mother lost her memory,
she started talking in the Lanna dialect of her
childhood. Phaptawan sculpted the head
of her mother from the memory of the time
when her mother was a nun. The scattered
fabric masks are placed together and filled
with produce from local market.
