Give Me A Spoon - – ATTA Gallery (Bangkok, Thailand)
« Give Me A Spoon” is the result of a challenge proposed by the curator Vipoo Srivilasa, in his residence at Canada. Vipoo Srivilasa wanted to withdraw the artists from their comfort zone, translating their practice into a new kind of work. The result are very different pieces, with a mix of techniques and processes but they’re all spoons.
» It all started in September 2013 with my residency in Canada, where I challenged all of the residents to a spoon competition. The spoons created during this competition travelled to an exhibition in Kansas City and are now off to Boston with my OBJECT: SPOON project.
As all this was happening, ATTA Gallery saw a potential of a spoon exhibition in Bangkok.
I am excited to work with ATTA Gallery to stage an exhibition that explores the notion of spoon as wearable art. The exhibition features artists who work in different media from around the world. The idea is to challenge artists to create something that they do not normally create and exercise their creativity by translating their practice into a new kind of work. Most importantly, it is for the artists to have fun! » Vipoo Srivilasa, Curator
