… we share the painfulness…
I would like to search human sense to create a state of intimacy and profound familiarity with emotion.
When you see… you can touch.
When you hear… you can touch.
When you smell… you can touch.
When you taste… you can touch.
… the rhythm of life…
Nopawan Sirivejkul is an active member of Thailand’s performance art community. She has been a manager of Asiatopia International Performance Art Festival in Thailand, as well as organizing her own events. In 2007 she started MiniMoves, a group that organizes contemporary art exchanges in Bangkok. MiniMoves responds to what we find in pop culture, from shared identity to alienation. Where are the margins of this new world without borders, where communities are forced to face up to new things? In what relationships do people find themselves? Projects to date have brought together Thai artists with artists from Japan, Myanmar and Singapore. Nopawan is also a cultural writer for magazines and newspapers. Her photographs have been exhibited in the Tadu Gallery and Thailand’s National Art Gallery. As a performance artist, she has performed in Thailand, Poland, Germany, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Singapore and Myanmar.
