Ceramic artist, Vipoo Srivilasa‘s latest exhibition, Roop-Rote-Ruang is currently on display at Gallery 4A: Asia-Australia Arts Centre. Translating as Taste-Touch-Tell, the exhibition coincides with several dinner parties the artist will host within private Sydney residencies throughout the exhibition’s duration. Srivilasa created ceramic dinner sets especially for this project, which the guests will eat from. He will prepare a four course meal and get the audience to engage in a range of activities that reflect his Thai heritage. The exhibition is also interactive in nature, focusing on issues regarding environmental damage. Tickets to the artist’s dinner parties are able to be bought for $150 a head.
Srivilasa was born in Thailand, before migrating to Australia as an adult, where he currently lives and works. He has studied at various institutions including Rangsit University, Bangkok, Monash University, Melbourne and the University of Tasmania, Hobart. His work has appeared within numerous group exhibitions on an international scale, including at SOFA, Chicago, Gallery Twenty Five, New Delhi and Brisbane City Gallery, Queensland. He has also had several solo exhibitions within Australia and Thailand. He received first prize at the Golden Teapot Awards in 2003, and an honourable mention at the 4th World Ceramic Biennale, Korea.
