    A play with the audience

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 10/12/2015

    » In the painting The Treachery Of Images by surrealist René Magritte, there is the text, "Ceci n'est pas une pipe". But in a new performance by B-Floor's co-artistic director Jarunun Phantachat, she calls it Ceci N'est Pas La Politique (This Is Not Politics). This may well be a treacherous title too, considering how politically outspoken B-Floor has been, with Manoland by Teerawat Mulvilai in October and other performances over the year.

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 20/02/2017

    » The Thai arts scene has become more politically engaging in the past couple of years. The 2014 coup, of course, has been the most significant transition point in this respect. Before, it was very much about making sense of the colour-coded divide, trying to get into the mentality behind such ideological conflict. In the post-coup era, however, it can be said that the ideas and interests have become somewhat more unified. Artists have become increasingly aware of and responded more to the authoritarian power and the climate of fear and rights restriction.

    One for the books

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 18/08/2016

    » Bangkok just can't get enough of literary input, and we are talking about just the month of August alone. Last month there was the Bangkok Book Festival, and ongoing until this Sunday is the much-hyped Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, offering 60-80% discounts on 2 million copies of English language books from every imaginable genre. It's a fair where many have spent money on books they probably won't get to read in this lifetime.

    NYC attitude in BKK

    » The thing is Korakrit Arunanondchai is coming to town. And whether you love or hate the denim-clad, fiery-haired New York-based artist, it's very likely that, starting this weekend, he will be pretty much taking over the Bangkok art scene.

    Bright and early

    Muse, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 14/12/2013

    » Chinese artist Yu Jordy Fu's career has literally been a shooting rocket, launched at a very young age. She held her first solo exhibition when she was six. At seven, a compilation book of her art was published. At 17, she was accepted by Central Saint Martin's College of Arts and Design in London even though she hadn't even finished high school. At 19, another book was published. At 22, she had her work exhibited at the Venice Biennale (she was the youngest participant, of course). At 26, she started her own design and architecture company.
