CONCEPT OF ARTWORK
In this work, Wasinburee Supanichvoraparch has applied the ceramic patterns of Chinese Porcelain that once belonged to Augustus the Strong to a tiger sculpture. Augustus II traded his highly reputed Dragoon soldiers for 151 porcelain pieces to gain recognition and status as a powerful and sophisticated king. This story has always fascinated the artist and has regularly become a source of his aesthetic inspiration. Fundamentally, history can be written by the living. It can be good or bad, recorded or left unspoken. The voice and conversation we choose will result in the world around us, so let’s speak up for the tiger to preserve it for the future.
