BANGKOK CITYCITY GALLERY is proud to present THE COMMONER’S HOUSE, the second solo exhibition by Thai artist Dusadee Huntrakul at the gallery. The exhibition is curated by Singaporean curator John Z.W. Tung, who has followed Huntrakul’s practice closely for the past eight years.
Expounding on existing themes that have characterised Huntrakul’s practice, the exhibition of new artworks that comprise cast brass pieces, photographs, and ceramic sculptures reveals an expanded array of materials that the artist has employed in his artmaking practice since THEY TALK in 2019. Consolidating these varied artistic endeavours and interests in a singular exhibition makes apparent their intertwining relationships, reiterating the artist’s committed focus towards offering new ways of seeing, perceiving, and evaluating the connections between all living beings.
Dusadee Huntrakul（b.1978, Bangkok, Thailand Lives and works in Bangkok）
An artist with his deep-rooted imagination and yearning for an interconnected carriageway to souls. In 1998, the first time Huntrakul saw his late brother bring home fired funky ceramic pots that he made at a community college’s pottery class in USA, that was when something profound moved inside of him. Huntrakul started working with clay himself almost twenty years ago at his uncle’s ceramic studio in Bangkok. Many schools and different lives later, he still uses fired clay, language and other materials to compose space that is familiar yet unknown. Between teaching and raising a child, he keeps a modest studio practice around Phrakanong area in Bangkok, Thailand. Dusadee Huntrakul is set to participate in Singapore Biennale Every Step In The Right Direction in November 2019.
