Insignificant Meaningful

Insignificant Meaningful

Facing the rise of political movements with nationalist claims around the world, Torlarp Larpjaroensook utilises ordinary objects symbolic of different Asian countries and cultures to remind us of the syncretic nature of our societies. Larpjaroensook assembles everyday objects such as lunch boxes, thermos flasks, vases, plates and bowls made from a variety of materials like ceramic, enamel and wood. This diversity and multitude of artefacts are reflective of Chinese, Indian, Thai, Malay and Peranakan cultures. Though they seem insignificant in appearance, these found objects from daily life are charged with meaning as they tell the past, present and future stories of those who owned and used them. Viewed in its entirety as a single ensemble, the installation becomes a timeless metaphor for human migration.
