    Exposure is key to Chiang Mai photography exhibition

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 25/01/2017

    » The room is red and hot, but nothing feels erotic about it. Eight naked models are featured in Tada Hengsapkul's latest photography show "The Things That Take Us Apart", yet it resulted not in a height of sexual tension but just a seemingly normal and civilised social gathering.

    Loud paintings

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 13/01/2016

    » Echoing the title of Paphonsak La-or's solo exhibition "Silent No More", his opening reception at Lyla Gallery in Chiang Mai on Boxing Day last year was buzzing with locals and those who had made the trip from Bangkok. Milling around, everyone in the exhibition room couldn't possibly have avoided the huge 7m-long centrepiece that comes with a shade of blue paint that is neither gloomy nor reassuring in the background. While there's a sentence in the middle, "This image is no longer available", the bottom text reads, "Love which was woven in our society leads to a great tragedy and sorrow".

    Sense behind the madness

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/07/2016

    » One is either enthralled, frustrated or confused by Apichatpong Weerasethakul's films. It's possibly a reflex of a complex and conflicting emotion -- you are not sure whether it's yourself as an audience or Apichatpong as a filmmaker that inspire those reactions.

    Threading her way through Islam

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/09/2016

    » The painting looks computerised, yet there are imperfections as if it was made by hand. Looking closely, the forms on the work seem abstract, yet from afar, they are clearly human figures kneeling down as if praying. Entitled Jamaah 2, an Arabic term loosely meaning the act of doing good in congregation with the community, the work is by Thidarat Chantachua, and it was the winner of the 2015 UOB Painting of the Year Award in the Established Artist Category.

    The truth behind the facade

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 15/10/2015

    » At a time when freedom of expression is becoming increasingly constrained, whether one is just an internet user, a filmmaker or an activist, experimental theatre troupe B-Floor is as relentless as ever. After Ornanong Thaisriwong's solo performance Bang La Merd earlier this year was attended by military officers, B-Floor is back under the directorial helm of Teerawat Mulvilai in Manoland.

    Regional revolution

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 03/02/2016

    » 'An art fair is always a commercial event," said Lorenzo Rudolf, founder and president of Art Stage Singapore whose sixth edition ended last month. There's not a response more apt than that to a common complaint like: "Oh, but Art Stage is too commercial." It's an art fair, and quite naturally, as Rudolf added in an interview during the fair, "the galleries come here to sell".

    Thais take the Lion City

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 03/02/2016

    » Singapore's Art Week is over but it doesn't mean there aren't any good remnants left. The newly-opened National Gallery, for one, is hardly what one would call a remnant, with a comprehensive collection of works by Southeast Asian artists from the 19th century onwards which would take at least a day to completely take in. There are also, of course, a few major shows at the old military quarters-turned-art hub Gillman Barracks, such as Steve Mccurry's iconic photography show, Yinka Shonibare's new sculptures and Joan Jonas' acclaimed "They Come To Us Without A Word" exactly as seen in last year's Venice Biennale.

    A cultural crossroads

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 28/01/2015

    » In the trailer for the currently running Channel 3 TV series Bang Rajan, the formidable Somchai Kemglad bellowed: "I'll fight with my body and blood for the my fellow Thais, for them to be at peace, whether awake or asleep."
