SOLO OSLO: Apichaya Wanthiang Conversation

In the second edition of SOLO OSLO, artist Apichaya (Piya) Wanthiang invites visitors to move through a total installation entitled Some Body Else, where the main elements are sound, light and sculpture. In this conversation with curator Tominga O’Donnell, the artist discusses the development of the project and how it relates to her wider practice.

Focusing on the body as a way of regulating emotions, Piya Wanthiang has created a sensuous experience in the distinctive gallery space on the 10th floor of MUNCH. Light, shadows and sound are core components of a work that addresses the whole body. This means that Wanthiang's exhibition resonates particularly well with the blind and visually impaired young people that SOLO OSLO mediator Frida Rusnak has chosen for her mediation project. 

The ticket to this event also gives you admission to all exhibitions at MUNCH. 

Piya Wanthiang (b. 1987 Bangkok, Thailand) creates installations to study effects on perception, behaviour and human interaction with each other and the environment. Wanthiang has taught at the Academy of Fine Arts in Trondheim and at the Faculty of Art, Music and Design (KMD) at the University of Bergen.   

This talk is part of SOLO OSLO, a series of solo exhibitions presented in collaboration with Talent Norway and Canica.
