Prach Pimarnman

Live and Lives and works in Narathiwat and Pattani provinces, Prach is a visual artist who often takes part in community movements and focuses on the Malay historical route. He presents a fictional image of a safe space through mixed media and fabric sculptures, made from waste materials with the PATANI locals. 

Amid conflict and violence in the region, Prach keens to record personal history through fabric sculptures –produced with local housewives and filled with stories of each individual concerning struggle to maintain one's identity while facing diverse emotions, among the seemingly endless seasons. Pieces of cloth from each housewife in Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat were brought to sew in a patchwork style, weaved into an abstract story, creating ordinary conversations and natural healing among each other. As if they are inventing a safe space in a shared imagination.
