SAWATIKA by Maja Hürst
Opening reception Saturday 5th of April 2014 at 7pm
The Toot Yung Art Center together with the Swiss Embassy in Bangkok are pleased to invite you to the opening reception of SAWATIKA, Maja Hürst's first solo exhibition in Asia.
Maja Hürst was invited for a residence at the art center from February to April 2014, during which she developed various works from phyrographed woodcuts, to spray behind-glass-paintings and mixed media on canvas. The rich, eclectic and generous body of work of the artist, juggling with themes such as daily life, pollution, ephemerality, folklore, mythology and love, is a refreshing overview of the powerful imagination and energy which Maja Hürst will display at the gallery from April 5th to May 20th 2014. In the boutique will be presented a limited collection of woodcut printed shirts; made in collaboration with Swiss architect Thomas Meyer / AIM who developed unisex cuts in linen and fine cotton coated with the dynamic forms of TIKA.
Starting 9pm chill out to the Deep House and Tropical Bass beats of DJ Remy Gold!
