Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook: The Village and Elsewhere


Village and Elsewhere: Thai Villagers and Gentileschi’s Judith and Holofernes, Jeff Koons, 2011

Curated by John Clark & Clare Veal

The art of Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook embraces three fields: graphic art, installation including multi-channel video installations, and writing. Work through all three means speaks to how woman can be in a world and represented by her own voice. Her early work challenges recent notions of non-hand-produced visual images. The video work from the late-1990s challenges ideas about the body and Buddhist notion of mortality, as well as more recently questions of what constitutes art in relation to a popular audience, such as The Two Planets Series, 2008. Early prints will be exhibited together with two works from the Two Planets video series.

Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook: The Village and Elsewhere is presented by the University of Sydney in association with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art


Exhibtion opens 17 Mar 2014 until 3 May 2014
