APICHAYA WANTHIANG
"While the Light Eats Away at the Colors"

A painterly installation
13.01. - 19.03.2017


Opening 13.01. at 18:00


Curated by Trond Lossius and Malin Barth




- The taste of sea salt, lingers nearly imperceptibly on my tongue. Memories flash up in front of my mind’s eye. A broad boulevard follows the coast, lined with singular palm trees. The weather is sweater-breezy and the light eats away at the colors. Shades of greens and blues that make up the sea seem to be floating, as if the colors carry no weight.

In the distance I see the white Chapel’s silhouette popping up. It’s blue stained glass shimmering like a wavy walk. I stretch my arm and point at it. Then, as if lifted away from it’s surrounding landscape, the chapel lands on the top of my index finger. I squint a little, trying to block out the flood of light, due to this my eyelashes create a protective chiaroscuro. I first close my left eye and then my right. The chapel dances to and fro. Distracted in play, it is as if I am a place without body.

The following day, on the drive through the meandering hill sides, clusters of houses recede in the far distance. Then inside the red house, I find a small painting of the boulevard with the palm trees. The storm in the painting nearly sucks the palms into the twirling grey sky. All of a sudden I realise that only a few decades ago he was looking at and painting from the same landscapes: A mere correspondence or should we call it a time-scape?

The aim of the exhibition is to create a slow spatial narrative, and and also to work deliberately with the presentation of the work in order to invite the audience to engage meaningfully with the paintings over time. The exhibition will be immersive and large, or rather extended, in time as well as space; an installation consisting mostly of paintings, with other supporting structures and media as needed. In conjunction with the exhibition a one-day seminar will be organised, discussing some of the core topics and investigations of the exhibition.

The exhibition received funds from Norske Billedkunstnere (NBK).
