WTF Gallery is pleased to announce an installation of sculpture, Floating, by Sutee Kunavichayanont and the special pre-show offer available from now until 30 April 2011.
Floating is a work that invites you to contemplate beyond the physical realm. The sculptures are detached from the earth — like a consciousness set free. How so? From dreaming, meditating, taking drugs and alcohol or affected by a magic spell? Is it floating because of imagination, reality or deception?
Sutee Kunavichayanont is a leading Thai artist who encourages the viewer to directly and indirectly to participate in his work. Sutee asks the viewer to question, act and react to his works as well as to question themselves and the circumstances around them. Artistic themes that are prevalent in his work are strongly linked to the history and customs of Thailand. Overall his work is sensitive to art, history, politics, his audience and his materials. He uses various mediums including, fiber glass, neon, school desks, metal and gold leafing.
He has had numerous exhibitions in Thailand, Australia, France, Germany, and Korea. His solo exhibtions have been presented by Phuket 346 (Thailand), 100 Tonson Gallery (Thailand), Atelier Frank & Lee (Singapore) Thai Art Foundation (The Netherlands) Optica (Canada) and Musashino Art University (Japan). He also co-curated Thailand’s contribution to the 2005 Venice Biennale. Sutee is also a well known writer and art critic.
Installations of Sutee’s have been acquisitioned by H+F Collection (The Netherlands), Singapore Art Museum (Singapore),Thai Farmers Bank PCL (Thailand), Thai Investment and Securities PCL. (Thailand), LASALLE College of the Arts (Singapore),Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (Japan), Queensland Art Gallery (Australia) and Mori Art Museum (Japan).
