Opening reception Saturday 4 April at 7.00 pm of the exhibition “Monsters by Hands”. If you can’t quite make it to Thailand for the opening you can check out the show in a few weeks at http://vipaust.multiply.com.

“The Thai Celadon, Chiang Mai, will be exhibiting a very unique and exciting series of work, created by the employees of the factory at Pongnoi Art Space from 5-26 April 2009 (close 12-15 April, during Songkran holiday). These one off hand made ceramic pieces have been crafted under the guidance and assistance of the factory’s first artist-in-residence, a Thai-born Australian artist, Vipoo Srivilasa. Vipoo’s stated theme for the work, “Monsters by Hands” challenge the perception of the typical factory products by blurring the concepts of handmade and mass production.

Vipoo also invited a local photographer, Jatturong Sartkhum, to document and help tell the behind the scene stories of the individual artists and their respective creative process.
This exhibition will be the highlight of the collaboration of Vipoo and Thai Celadon, and is part of the 50th birthday celebration of making Celadon wares.”
