This new body of video work by Kawita Vatanajyankur reconstructs elements of traditional 17th century painting that would often pose female bodies as still-life subjects within domestic spaces. With this scenario as her foundation, Vatanajyankur brings the female body into a new stark environment where body and domestic object conflate and seem to physically react and violently communicate with each other. In doing so, Vatanajyankur reflects on the physical, psychological and cultural aspects of feminine endurance, strength and insecurity.
Kawita Vatanajyankur was born in Bangkok, Thailand and graduated from RMIT University with distinction in 2011. She has held solo exhibitions at spaces such as First Site Gallery (2011), Seventh (2012), and Trocadero Art Space (2012).
