    FUTURE/SUSTAINABLE is a solo show by Chanthaphone Rajavong, a Philadelphia based artist using ancient weaving techniques from Laos, his native country, to create sculptures out of salvaged components from electronics. After spending seven years of his childhood in a refugee camp in Thailand, Rajavong moved to the United States, where art making helped him adjust to his new environment.

    In a way that mirrors his lived experience, he gives discarded materials a new life, an opportunity to reenter a world that once abandoned them. To this effect, current global events echo throughout his work, which is concerned with the Anthropocene, the fragility of the planet, and humanity. As he puts it, FUTURE/SUSTAINABLE “is an urgent plea for the healing of our planet.”

    Rajavong attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and has exhibited internationally.
