Nora Thamthanakorn

Time Body invites a reflection on the momentary nature of existences. It is a series of sculptural ceramic works exploring the principle of impermanence. The works are expressions of perishable conditions and that all substances are subject to continuous transformations. Interacting with this fragility, my practice has evolved to capture and bring into presence the relationship between the impermanence and life.

Perceiving erosion and architectural ruins as solid metaphors for the temporary nature of us and our surroundings, I hope to create universal visual language through recognisable forms and to recontextualise their permanent household functional values, raising mindfulness of the ephemerality we experience in our daily routine and living cycle. I hope for the works to bring into consciousness continuous changes of us and our surroundings.

Nora Thamthanakorn’s practice explores the principle of impermanence. Being self-taught, she works in clay to express the perishable conditions and the transient nature of existences. Growing up in Thailand, the Buddhist belief in Impermanence is central to her practice. As one encounters transformations through a lifetime, there are senses of uncertainty after one transition to the next. Interacting with this vulnerability, Nora aims to capture and bring into presence the relationship between the impermanence and life.
