Lives and works in Bangkok
Dusadee Huntrakul is a multi-disciplinary artist working across mediums of sculpture, ceramic, drawing, painting, and text. Seeking human connections that extend across time, his works span the topics of mortality, archaeology, anthropology, and urban ecological observation. Ever since seeing his late brother bring home funky fired ceramic pots that he made at a community college’s pottery class in the US in 1998, something profound moved within him. He started working with clay almost twenty years ago at his uncle’s ceramic studio in Bangkok, and remains to this day, committed to using fired clay, language, and other materials to compose spaces that are familiar yet unknown.
