    » 1. The Bangkok Biennial has brought to town its fair share of exhibitions, as pavilions are dispersed throughout the city. Opening this weekend, the Supernatural Pavilion is taking place in Care Nang Leung temple with a performance and video installation The 5x5 Legged Stool, based on the 1962 dance score by Ann Halpin, The Five Legged Stool. In Bangkok, a new performance by Mari Fukutome comes to life, captured by video artist Chulayarnnon Siriphol, and explores the ways in which contemporary dance is recorded and archived in time. Viewers can visit the pavilion until tomorrow. Performances will take place at 8pm at Wat Care Nang Lerng, Phaniang Road, Khwaeng Wat Sommanat and Khet Pom Prap Sattru Phai.

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.

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 22/11/2017

The iconic garment piece, which reached national-symbol status for Indonesia, is currently the object of, and point of departure for, the exhibition "POLA - Patterns Of Meaning" at the Jim Thompson Art Centre.
