Island

Icebergs in Thailand - who would have thought? Island dramatizes the vitality of water both in foreign and local places in the form of icebergs that are alienated from their tropical hosting space. Emerging from the ground as poetic monuments, the sculptures encapsulate selected plots of land and harvest the water released from the earth to nourish a thriving ecology inside. Bangkok-based conceptual artist Ruangsak Anuwatwimon considers water: a seemingly simple and abundant resource that exists everywhere from within our bodies to the oceans, yet one that poses countless accessibility and pollution problems around the world. He has further designed the experience to allow Wonderers to explore the relationship between humans and nature.
