PHAPTAWAN SUWANNAKUDT is featured in the current issue of Eyeline magazine. In the introduction to Uncertainty is Certain: The work of Phaptawan Suwannakudt, Adam Geczy writes of individuals being the passive observers on the faith of others, an inviting aspect in Suwannakudt’s art. While her work is faithful to the Buddhist notion, it seeks to introduce and incorporate the viewer despite their cultural or religious positions. The title from her 2012 installation Not for Sure, is derived from the yogic statement that ‘uncertainty is certain’, a reminder that our conceptions of the world are fleeting, relative, and fragmented.­
