Tadasu Takamine & ComPeung for Twist&Shout, BACC, Bangkok

The collaboration began in May 2009, when Takamine visited ComPeung. Impressed by the sustainable frameworks, ComPeung's self-built earthen architecture inspired the final project at the BACC. The Project focuses on the process rather than the finished product. Conceived by Takamine the project’s im/possibilities were being discussed between Takamine and the ComPeung Team through emails and online conferences for over 2 months. This initial exchange and in conjunction with interviews conducted in Japan and a short working residency @ ComPeung shaped the ideas into reality – thus culminating in the museum presentation at the BACC. The final installation at the BACC is part of the process of shaping The Project.  Indeed, rather than sharing with the audience some examples of sustainability, we wish to raise some questions that haven’t been clearly answered.
