‘Art has no language’ is a saying often heard when collaborations between cultures take place.
And in only a few weeks a collaboration between Thai artist Torlarp Larpjaroensook and Danish artist Andreas Schulenburg called I-Solated Being will take place at Subashok The Arts Center (SAC).
A Thai and a Dane may seem as a strange combination for a duo-exhibition, and in a lot of ways the cultures are very different. But in some ways we have a lot in common, as the SAC writes:
“Danish “hygge” and Thai “sanuk” are 2 examples of words that represent a conscious effort within each respective culture to connect the individual experience happily into the greater society. Though different in their communal ambience and energy, both expressions signify a focus on life to remove stress, to be kind, and to enjoy the present moment.“
About the two artists, SAC writes:
”Torlarp Larpjaroensook was born in 1977 and raised in a houseboat in Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Thailand. He started his study in formal art at the College of Fine Arts, Bangkok. Later on, he graduated with a BA majoring in Painting from the Fine Art Faculty at Chiang Mai University. Torlarp Larpjaroensook is a multidisciplinary artist who is interested in the interaction between people and artworks.(…) Andreas Schulenburg (1975) was born in Germany and educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Schulenburg produces works in a variety of media and perspective – such as ceramics, drawing, felt and sculpture. Felt is manifested in works of sculpture and 2D imagery in a range of sizes. This material continues to be his preferred medium as seen in this exhibition.”
The exhibition will take place from 17th of March 2018 and close again on the 22nd of April.
The collaboration is supported by The Royal Danish Embassy.
