    A surprise behind the door

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 09/03/2018

    » The house sits deep in the woods, near a cemetery staked with tombstones. The family consists of a father, reeling in debt, and his four children, the eldest 22 and the youngest six. The mother is ill, ashen-faced, bedridden, and she'll jingle the brass bell in her hand to summon help. That jingling bell, and the apparition of a woman in a white gown in the mother's gloomy bedroom, will signal the cue of many jump-scares in the tale that unfolds.

    J-pop gone rogue

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 07/04/2019

    » Anyone who's been to Japan (or spent a decent amount of time on the internet) would have probably come across T-shirts with puzzling or badly translated English. Perusing CHAI's pastel-hued website gives you a similar experience except that everything actually makes sense -- "We Are New Exciting Onna (female) Band From Japan! NEO KAWAII ! COMPLEX IS ART!," its meta description announces. A click and a quick scroll down also give you an overview on the group's "NEO KAWAII" ethos, which essentially goes against any notions of the classic kawaii ("You don't need to have big eyes or have skinny legs to be KAWAII! There should be many more types of KAWAII, and everyone is KAWAII in her own way … Our insecurities make us who we are. The insecurities become art. KAWAII is a never-ending journey!").

    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.

    Life, Anchalee Kongrut, Published on 30/11/2016

    » Pintima Lertsomboon, a librarian at Thammasat University, remembered trying to work on Oct 14 in order to soothe the bereavement brought by news of the death of His Majesty King Bhumibol.

    Rap with resonance

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 22/08/2016

    » For Australian indigenous hip hop performers Juanita Duncan, Naomi Wenitong and Dizzy Doolan, music and dance resonates with stories of the tumultuous past of the Aboriginal population. The injustices meted out to what was called the Stolen Generations are a remnant of Australian history that is kept alive through their performances wherever they happen to be.

    Doc lovers rejoice!

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 18/03/2016

    » It is high time for audiences who appreciate the rough-edged reality of documentary films. Of the five nominees of the Oscar for best documentary feature, three had a regular release in Bangkok cinemas (Amy, Cartel Land, The Look of Silence), something unthinkable a few years ago when no distributor wanted to risk showing non-fiction films in cinemas. Now there is almost always at least one documentary film at SF CentralWorld, with the initiation of the independent outfit Documentary Club (in the programme now is The Hunting Ground, about rape crimes in American universities).

    A monthly column rounding up the best of the capital's art scene

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 22/10/2014

    » The opening of WTF Gallery's current exhibition "Monday 2 Monday" earlier this month might have been missed by a few. That could partly be explained by the exhibition's title and the fact that the opening was actually on a Friday. In addition, the gallery is closed on Mondays. But this is all beside the point.

    » "IIt's fun. You feel more silly doing your superhero thing on your own," said Benedict Cumberbatch to a group of Asian journalists. "Then when you're doing it with other people watching you, especially if they're Robert Downey Jr., you feel even more silly."
