Nora Thamthanakorn’s practice explores an understanding of the impermanence. Working in clay, she brings into presence perishable conditions and transient nature of existences. Growing up in Thailand, the Buddhist doctrine of Impermanence is central to her work. Living in a city surrounded by historical ruins, physical deterioration is perceived as solid metaphor for the temporal and ephemeral nature of human beings, our life cycle and surrounded existences.
As one encounters transitions, there is a sense of uncertainty after one transformation to the next. Interacting with this vulnerability, Nora’s practice has evolved to capture and bring to mindfulness the relationship between the impermanence and life.
