Party: Body Language (i) by Pieng-or Pinpart

Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition Body Language (I) with brass and bronze sculptures by the young and talented Thai artist Pieng-or Pinpart on 22 May - 3 July, 2010.

Pieng-or Pinpart’s life is marked by her struggle to deal with the physical and emotional symptoms of being bipolar. In Body Language I Pieng-or moulds bronze and brass sculptures that visualize the alternating bouts of extreme depression and mania she suffers through the debilitating disorder. Her bent, beaten, and torn body frames are a graphic expression of her fluctuating range of emotions, the medication used to control the illness, and the physical toll that her body and mind endure. Her battered forms are testament to her creative resilience and her resolve to bring greater stability to her life. Pieng-or is currently studying for her BA in Fine Art at King Mongkut Institute of Technology Latkrabang.

The two-part art exhibition Body Language I & II showcases new three-dimensional works by artists Pieng-or Pinpart and Angkana Kongpetch. Marking their debut solo exhibitions, this two-stage exhibition highlights young female artists who produce metal sculptures using the human body as a metaphor for individual themes. Aside from commonalities in gender, age, and aesthetics, both artists affirm the importance for physical and spiritual balance in our existence.

Body Language I & II are the third and fourth exhibitions in the year-long project, 3D @ Thavibu, highlighting three-dimensional art in Suite 307 of Thavibu Gallery. Curated by Steven Pettifor, 3D @ Thavibu will present
a series of exhibitions featuring established and emergent Thai and international artists.
