Trained as a weaver, and known for her vibrant, textural, assemblage sculptures which often straddle the line between the masculine and feminine, Anne Samat is a transgender artist who’s popularity in Asia has been on a constant rise.  Distinctive and unmissable, her striking works have been seen at many an art fair, the Yokohama Triennale, and will be exhibited at prestigious venues throughout 2019 such as Stories We Scare Ourselves With, Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei and the much awaited SPECTROSYNTHESIS II- Exposure of Tolerance: LGBTQ in Southeast Asia (SPECTROSYNTHESIS II). Samat has been commissioned to make a work especially for this show, which will be the largest-ever survey of regional contemporary art that explores lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and queer creative history in Southeast Asia and beyond, at the Bangkok Arts and Culture Center, co-presented by the Sunpride Foundation.
