Kawita Vatanajyankur
Bangkok, Thailand , 1987
Kawita connects performance, media and physical movement. Her videos and photographs suggest the body’s physical and spiritual limitations. She uses her body as an art object, based on the history of paintings of women in domestic settings. Her use of her own body as an object in many of her works questions the role that women have played in carrying out mundane, household tasks.
