Conversation: Jakkai Siributr and Elif Gül Tirben

25 Mar 2014

“I didn’t look at it as fiber art or categorized it as craft or fine art, it’s just my way of making my art. I try to take a very basic, domestic, grandmotherly technique and take it as far as I can. When I saw no limitations, the work really evolved. It became more three-dimensional and installation based.”

Jakkai Siributr spoke to Elif Gül Tirben of m-est in Istanbul, about Thai Buddhism and the after life, religious and political corruption, and how these are reflected in his body of work.
