Nora Thamthanakorn’s practice evolves from a contemplation of the relationship between attachment and the evanescence, the impermanence. Clay is explored as a material of lifelike properties, a record of the past, present and every movement of thoughts. Perceiving architectural and physical deterioration as metaphors for the ephemerality of us as well as all surrounded substances, she translates capacities of temporariness into visible mindfulness, responding to uncertainties one experiences 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.
