    Making an artistic splash with a social conscience

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 29/11/2017

    » Kawita Vatanajyankur's video performances, set against candy-coloured backdrops, are both alluring and thought-provoking, as the artist is far more concerned with what's going on inside the candy factory than with bright and shiny wrappings, of the kind that has come to define our modes of consumption. With several major international exhibitions in 2017 -- including a stint at the Venice Art Biennale as part of the Alamak! Pavilion -- Kawita has been busy packing and unpacking, installing her works in locations around the globe.

    » As if the collection of Southeast Asian modern art at the recently opened National Gallery Singapore wasn't overwhelmingly impressive enough, the gallery has recently launched yet another show which, and this is no overstatement, is in itself worth making a trip to the Lion City.

    Sex, truth & politics

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 11/09/2017

    » In Uthis Haemamool's new novel, the protagonist's erotic adventure runs parallel to Thailand's political education. A man's carnal quests and sexual outbursts become, in a way, an allegory of a larger social context as the country goes through three coups d'etat and several convulsive protests in the past 25 years. The awakening of the loin as a metaphor for political orgasm, physical penetration as an analogy for abuses of power -- <i>Rang Haeng Pratana</i> (Silhouette Of Desire) is a novel that, Uthis admits, presents him with many risks as a writer.

    Ratchaburi's roll of the dice

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 04/03/2016

    » Almost five years ago the late writer and National Artist in literature Prabhassorn Sevikul wrote a short story.

    Thais take the Lion City

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 03/02/2016

    » Singapore's Art Week is over but it doesn't mean there aren't any good remnants left. The newly-opened National Gallery, for one, is hardly what one would call a remnant, with a comprehensive collection of works by Southeast Asian artists from the 19th century onwards which would take at least a day to completely take in. There are also, of course, a few major shows at the old military quarters-turned-art hub Gillman Barracks, such as Steve Mccurry's iconic photography show, Yinka Shonibare's new sculptures and Joan Jonas' acclaimed "They Come To Us Without A Word" exactly as seen in last year's Venice Biennale.

    It's elemental

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 17/06/2015

    » Paradiso Gallerie, just a few minutes walk off the Giardini waterbus stop in Venice, is either a gallery space with a café or a café with a gallery space. Regardless, it is where Thai artwork is housed. National Artist Kamol Tassananchalee's set of prints, paintings and sculptures, Earth, Air, Fire & Water, represents Thailand in the 56th La Biennale di Venezia, the high-profile international art show that began last month and runs until Nov 22.
