Turn Me On Ceramics exhibition

At Rotunda and Garden Gallery & Cafe
2-30 March 2010
The opening ceremony will take place on Saturday 6 March 2010 at 6:30 pm

     Celebrating the art of the human body in a playful way ? ?Turn Me On? invites viewers to re-examine themselves and ?have fun with bums?. Challenge yourself and discover how you feel when confronted with many illuminated, beautiful naked bums.

     The bums, in porcelain and stoneware, have been built by hand, fired to the high heat of 1,230 ? 1,280 degrees Celsius. They are highly resistant to shy or brash stares, hot or cold touches, polite or direct critique, sexy or loving emotions. So try turning them on and no matter how you feel when seeing or touching them, ask yourself: Are You Turned On?

     Turn Me On is a bum shape ceramic light installation. Individually hand-built stoneware or porcelain with different finishes, glazed, unglazed or textured. Each bum gives out different light and brightness depending on the material, thickness, texture, glaze, light source and light exit.

     This is Nino Sarabutra?s second solo exhibition in Thailand. It continues the theme of "uncontrolled emotion" from her first solo "Exploring Love"  a wall installation of heart-shape stoneware bowls. Nino takes a different angle on human emotions. You can see her previous work at
