Gajah Gallery presents ‘Shifts in Perception’, a solo feature by Tawatchai Puntusawasdi at Gajah Gallery Singapore, curated by John Tung. Working predominantly with hardwood and metal, Tawatchai Puntusawasdi has come to be known for his refined and elegant sculptures that skew and distort recognisable forms, evoking in audiences a heightened experience of the spaces they inhabit. ‘Shifts in Perception’ is a concise presentation introducing the interests and concerns that have pervaded Tawatchai Puntusawasdi’s practice over the past two decades.
Beyond a melding of his mathematical mind and painstaking craftsmanship, the works also communicate the artist’s own ruminations on the limitations of human perception – our predominant means of apprehending reality. Bringing together iconic works from the artist’s oeuvre as well as newly commissioned artworks, the presentation intimates the artist’s unique perspectives and creation process in representing the world around us. In doing so, Tawatchai Puntusawasdi offers up a nuanced worldview underscored by the revelation that perspective is always relative to position, and perception is always rooted in circumstance.
‘Shifts in Perception’ will take place in Singapore from 11 – 28 November, 2021 at the gallery’s exhibition space in Tanjong Pagar Distripark. The show will be accompanied by an online feature and publication, written by curator John Tung.
