Meet Mechelle Bounpraseuth and hear her talk about her art practice and works in the exhibition, Placed.

Placed is an exhibition that probes how traditional and contemporary ceramics are instrumental in fostering a sense of place, belonging, and connection. Many of the objects in MAG&M’s ceramic collection reveal stories about Australia’s unique connections with place – Indigenous relationships to Country, waves of migrant stories, connection to landscape and nature, and contemporary relationships across the Asia-Pacific. The exhibition includes objects from the MAG&M ceramic collection and borrowed works from three artists who each bring a unique perspective to the theme of ‘place, Mechelle Bounpraseuth, Ara Dolatian, and Rona Panangka Rubuntja.
