Artist, Bangkok

Kawita Vatanajyankur is an artist from Bangkok who has garnered international recognition through an artistic practice that utilises her own body, often to mimic and perform tasks otherwise carried out by tools; in the process, Vatanajyankur renders visceral the notions of manual labour and consumption, particularly as they relate to the female body within the context of her home, Thailand. Her work has been curated into prestigious shows such as Thailand Eye (2015) at the Saatchi Gallery, London and Islands in the Stream (2017) during the 57th Venice Biennale; her works are also found in various collections worldwide. She is currently being represented by Nova Contemporary, Bangkok and Antidote Organisation, Australia.
