    Exhibition captures killer shots

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 19/11/2014

    » At around 7pm on May 13, 2010, Maj Gen Khattiya Sawasdipol, or Seh Daeng (Red Commander), was shot in the head while giving an interview to foreign reporters. Photographer Steve Pace was there and took the key picture. His image of the collapsed and bloodied general being carried away, published in several major newspapers worldwide, is what people still remember about this still-unresolved political assassination.

    The future, in reverse

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/06/2016

    » On the surface, artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul's video of a night journey through a temple doesn't seem to be in dialogue with photographs of Sakhalin island by Japanese Tomoko Yoneda. Nor does there seem to be any connection between Field Recordings' video work documenting migrant workers on the banks of Shanghai's Huangpu River and MAP Office's incredibly detailed imaginary map of "future Hong Kong".

    Greyscale greatness

    Brunch, Published on 09/09/2018

    » They look like pictures that could have been taken on Mars, if not heavily Photoshopped, but Tom Jacobi emphasises again and again that all his photos are of real and uncontrived structures on Earth. Ranging from deserts with pockets of water to dramatic mountain ranges, his photographs capture a world you've likely never seen before -- largely in grey tones because he has gotten up at 4am to get these shots.

    Reacting to the seen and unseen

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 21/09/2017

    » Just a couple of blocks away from the busy Sanam Luang area, where preparations for the royal cremation ceremony have entered their final phase, the exhibition "Pause. A Reflection On Disarray" offers a little respite, a little time and space to ponder our human reactions to things that come our way -- mud splashes both physical and metaphorical.

    An alternative dimension

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 09/11/2017

    » Entering Chai Siris' exhibition at Gallery VER is in many ways like penetrating a spirit house. Once shuffled through the door, visitors find themselves plunged in semi-obscurity, surrounded by life-size banana trees and landscape views that cover entire walls.

    A man of value

    Brunch, Duangkamol Panya, Published on 22/07/2018

    » The most legendary law enforcer in Thai history, Khun Phantharak Rajjadej, stopped crimes and cleaned up the bandits all with nothing more than a police badge, the gravitas of a peacekeeper, and perhaps, as legend has it, immortality which he derived from ancient Thai witchcraft.

    Leaving a Thai impression

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 01/01/2016

    » Once again, a small Thai film blew over Cannes Film Festival like a graceful lover. On Monday, Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Cemetery Of Splendour (or Rak Ti Khon Kaen) was screened to a thundering 10-minute standing ovation in the Un Certain Regard section, where the film's elegant formalism and aching beauty, deeply rooted in the northeastern spirit and post-coup reflection, shook up the festival slumber.

    Ground reality

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 15/09/2016

    » In The Road To Mandalay, young Myanmar migrants hide in the cargo of a truck trundling past the borders into Thailand. In Bangkok, they look for jobs with the dream that every Myanmar worker dreams: to save money and return home, or better, to go somewhere else where life is kinder. They both find work in a textile factory in the outskirts, the female weaving yarns and the male lifting machines. To them, Thailand is a land of hope, though they'll soon find out, like many Myanmar workers do, that it's also a limbo, a perpetual transit, a non-place where hope can be dashed in seconds and desire can turn into tragedy.

    Coming to terms

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 20/11/2017

    » A man with short hair -- wearing a sarong around his chest the way a woman would -- is seen frolicking alone happily on a crowded beach. Lost in his own world, he seems unfazed by the scrutiny and strange looks from children, women in hijab, and men in skullcap. In the background, the sound of Islamic prayers can be heard.
