GEOGRAPHY OF A
Through repetitions and movements, video and sound, two sculptural elements and the presence of the audience in space she is creating an atmospheric landscape based on ideas of dialogues. Her exhibition project discusses how we have the capability to tell stories. Wanthiang points out that we sometimes might experience to lack the story telling ability, while we still continue to communicate through pauses and utterances.
Apichaya Wanthiang (b. 1987, Thailand). Graduated in 2009 with a BA in Fine Arts from Sint-Lukas Brussels University College of Art and Design and is currently finishing her MA in Fine Arts at Bergen Academy of Art and Design. Her practice consists mostly out of painting, installation and text. Her works have previously been shown in exhibitions such as Canvascollectie at Bozar, Brussels, Belgium (2010) and 17 M.O.H at Bergen Kjøtt, Bergen, Norway (2011), and her first solo exhibition was From X into Minuses at Martin Van Blerk Galerie in Antwerp, Belgium (2009).
The MA-weekend is collaboration between Hordaland Art Centre and Bergen Academy of Art and Design. Twice a year the MA-students at the Bergen National Academy of the Arts are invited to submit proposals for an exhibition to be realised at Hordaland Art Centre, and a professional jury selects one of the proposals.
