The inhabitants of Vipoo Srivilasa’s enigmatic porcelain kingdom have much to tell us. As contemporary figurines they communicate through gesture, pattern, colour and texture: their delicately configured messages are full of poetic insight into the human condition, carrying more than just a touch of wry humour. Simultaneously both cool to the touch and hot with the fetishisms of empire, mercantilism and history, nothing compares with porcelain as a material.
