Kawita Vatanajyankur

Kawita shares a docu-style video that provides a glimpse into her current performance practice and studio setting in Bangkok. Within her outdoor studio, the recording explores the development of a new performance-based work; an installation of a constructed rice field and the continuing growth of the rice sprouts. The field informs part of her new series (of three works) for the upcoming exhibition Field Work, at the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP) in 2021.

Made in August 2020
