To have and to hold: Armie Sungvaribud
Devonport Regional Gallery
To have and to hold
17 December 2022 – 21 January 2023
The ceramics presented in To have and to hold solidifies memory, reconnecting the artist’s cultural heritage to form a sense of identity in a contemporary environment. By applying playful form and colour, Armie Sungvaribud represents intangible childhood memories from growing up in Thailand. These vessels embody the few blissful yet powerful images she cherishes from her roots, recreating them to keep their visions alive and foster a sense of belonging. Armie explores how time affects memory, resulting in a blurred history, and meditates on the importance in keeping her cultural identity conscious.
This exhibition is presented under the Little Gallery Emerging Artist Program.
