VENUE: PROJECT 304, BANGKOK, THAILAND
ARTISTS: Alexander Knox, Christian Thompson, Tul Waitoonkait, Prapon Joe Kumjin
CURATORS: Tessa Dwyer and Sarah Tutton
Expanding upon the initial Use-by exhibitions in Melbourne in 2000, which celebrated the resourcefulness of the prolific artist-run and independent gallery scene in the Asia-Pacific region, curators Tessa Dwyer and Sarah Tutton collaborated with Project 304's Gridthiya Gaweewong to facilitate an artistic collaboration between four artists in Bangkok. Visual artists Alexander Knox and Christian Thompson (Melbourne), sound designer Tul Waitoonkait and filmmaker/artist Prapon Joe Kumjin (Bangkok) set up a studio together at Project 304, working in pairs to develop work for exhibition. Sharing a commitment to exchanging ideas, swapping contexts and refashioning resources, the artists and curators aimed to explore new ways of working across and between cultures.
