Artist and human-land observer Estelle Srivijittakar has documented the interplay of cultural and ecological processes of several villages in Thailand. Her photographic works, called Vernacular Songs, will be featured at Concord Gallery in Los Angeles this coming Friday at 8pm.
Artist Kenneth Srivijittakar will be installing a Shrine/ Spirit House that he constructed. In Thailand, Shrines and Spirit Houses are placed on the land. These Spirit Houses are said to be home to ancestral spirits that look over and protect the land.
In response to Vernacular Songs, I have created a series of sediments. These sediments are made from natural materials from Thailand, as well as from the California Coast. More on these soon.
