Aesthetica Art Prize 2016: Call For Entries

From her background in Landscape architecture, Sanitas Pradittasnee been interested in sculptural space and how involves human interaction. Her work Khao Mo Siam Square (Mythical Escapsim), longlisted in 2015, explores the philosophy of “the impermanence of objects” and the form of nothingness; it intends to provoke thought around the contemporary social system and question the meaning of civilisation in a declining society.

A relationship exists between the height of physical aspect and the desire to be free of suffering, or the state of contentment, which is an abstraction. This mountain of belief is like the construction of  Mythical Escapism for the public. The space is designated for the time of the individual, to reflect on one’s personal thoughts and identity via this construction of imagination.

Longlisted and shortlisted artists have gone on to achieve success around the globe, including Jason deCaires Taylor, creator of the first underwater sculpture park in Grenada and French photographer Noémie Goudal, who has had solo shows at FOAM in Amsterdam and The Photographers’ Gallery in London.
