    Time traveller

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 04/04/2018

    » Period dramas, the sources of romanticisation of the bygone, continue to transfix viewers everywhere. From the South Korean culinary tale Dae Jang Guem, to the dramatisation of UK royalty in The Crown, or the court of Louis XIV in Versailles, or even Thailand's own See Pandin (Four Reigns), these fusions of history and fantasy offer an outlook to the past -- glorified or critical -- while also sparking interest and debate over the portrayals of historical accounts.

    BMA's Mahakan mess

    News, Postbag, Published on 21/01/2017

    » It is with deep disappointment that we have read Peerawat Jariyasombat's strangely ill-informed article, "A lesson in development" (BP, Jan 16, 2017). In a move that seems calculated to pander to the greed of developers rather than nurture the human resources represented by local populations, Khun Peerawat hails the efforts of Korean authorities to replace an existing population with an artist colony, but says nothing about the fate of the original residents.

    Iron man

    Life, Anchalee Kongrut, Published on 10/06/2016

    » Banjerd Lekkong, who grew up in his father's garage and whose intricate iron-welded sculptures are being exhibited in a New York gallery, is an outlier among Thai artists. The 47-year-old did not graduate from any art school -- neither Poh Chang or Silpakorn University, the most respected training grounds for local artists. His works have never been displayed in a local museum or gallery. Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre (BACC) turned down his proposal for an exhibition. Private galleries did the same. The only show he had was a brief display at Amarin Plaza, a shopping mall.
