Rattana Salee was born in 1982 and graduated with an MFA in Sculpture at Silpakorn University in 2011. Most characteristic of Rattana’s sculpture is the quality of abstraction. Inspired by Alberto Giacometti, the female artist renders the mass of her sculpture with steel bars, heavily worked with epoxy, to give us an unmistakable sense of erosion—a de-corporealisation of the sculptural mass. Although made to also commemorate and mark as remembrance, her sculpture is different from monuments in general. Showing no sign of aggression when it takes up space, Rattana’s sculpture comes into being in the quietest sense of the word. Marking her debut solo exhibition in Shell(Shocked), the atmospheric sculptural installation comprises metal and plaster architectural structures that reflect the private and communal complexities of urban living. Among other grants and awards, she was a recipient of the French Embassy’s scholarship to study at École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA), Paris, France, in 2011.
