An international art exhibition/collaborative project\ud \ud What To Dip/ วัตถุดิบ realizes the significance of natural resources to the members of each community across the globe and its value to humankind as a whole. Artists and their artworks have potential to be catalysts to build up awareness and concerns on critical matters at both local and worldwide scope. It focuses on encouraging visual artists across the world to explore and experiment on local "Raw Material"; the connection between physical qualities of chosen material and conceptual interpretation of material itself together with visual dialogues based on each artist's areas of interest within his/her own practice which will bring not only diverse cultural exchange to the exhibition and its local audiences but also knowledge and experience of world raw materials exchange. The project also encourages exhibiting artists to create site-specific pieces using a combination of local materials in Thailand and local materials from where they reside. What To Dip/ วัตถุดิบ project defines local materials as any local material that inspires artists to transform the material from its origins to a work of aesthetic.\ud \ud This presentation was the result of research into the making of autonomus objects from utilitarian materials. I am interested in the link between the aesthetic potential of hunting tools, such as fishing lures and baits, which both mimic natural entomology, how would these function as paintings in the gallery context.\ud \ud This work was made from a variety of natural materials, which included deer, elk, bear and human hair along with a variety of furs such as seal and mole. These materials were tied onto a variety of Salmon irons or hooks which functioned as armatures or supports for exhibition. A major factor in the making of these objects was the inclusion of human D.N.A. through the use of hair, which functioned as a form of portrature.\ud \ud Initially presented as the exhibition ‘What To Dip’, as part of an international collaborative show, involving the use of raw materials. Organised by the global visual artist community, ‘ uncookedculture.com’ the exhibition was held at Chiang Mai University Arts Centre, Tailand.\ud companion at G.S.A. and extended for a much larger variant at Spike Island, Bristol.
