Nora Thamthanakorn’s practice evolves from a continuous contemplation of the relationship between attachment and the evanescence, the impermanence. Clay is explored as a material of lifelike properties, transforming through heat and time. Perceiving architectural and physical deterioration as metaphors for the ephemerality of us as well as all surrounded substances, she translates capacities of the temporariness into visible mindfulness, responding to uncertainties experienced through lives being both of tangible and intangible natures.
One at times encounters fragility after one transformation to the next. One’s connection to stability brings insecurity. Nora counteracts this sense of vulnerability by capturing the tension between attachment, the impermanence and life.
