1PROJECTS is delighted to present the solo exhibition "MONSTROUS PHENOMENON" by Ruangsak Anuwatwimon. The exhibition presents the artist’s works from his time spent in Fukushima, Japan. The artist explores the impact of human intervention on Fukushima’s environment and inhabitants, in particular the causes and effects. Ruangsak links art, science and nature. He is interested in a regeneration of the sculpture concept. His poetic and conceptual pieces, which are often made of ashes of different animals, reflect on the protagonist relationship humans have with the natural world. The artist employs diverse mediums to express his ideas and challenges the perimeters of what constitutes an artwork. His conceptual projects explore social, cultural, and moral grounds of human societies. His works have been shown in Ver Gallery, Cartel Artspace, Bangkok Art & Cultural Centre, Whitespace Gallery Bangkok, at the Verbeke Foudation in Belgium, as well as the LaSalle College of Art in Singapore. He also participated in “Secret Archipelago”, a joint exhibition organised by the Singapore National Heritage Board and the Palais De Tokyo in Paris.
