    Living in theatre

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 13/08/2015

    » Right after entering the theatre space on the fourth floor of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Vidura Amranand was lying on the floor, scribbling on an acrylic box “when was the last time I cried about him?” A bit further into the production, Navinda Pachimsawat Vadtanakovint stood in awe of the pool of light that showered over her own shadow.

    Seeing the world through another's eyes

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 13/11/2015

    » As much as Facebook is a virtual space of borderless interaction, it has, for many, undeniably become our most immediate and primary news source. It's a personalised pool of information, which though we have chosen consciously, can transform who we are and the way we think without our even realising it. And I have often wondered what it would be like to live, maybe for a day, in the social media world of other people's Facebook accounts.

    » If "Fear" -- Manit Sriwanichapoom's latest photography and video show, which opened over the past weekend at H Gallery, Tang Contemporary Art and Kathmandu Photo Gallery (and at Yavuz Gallery in Singapore at the end of the month) -- isn't the hottest topic of discussion in the capital's art scene already, it soon will be.

    An unlikely muse to art of endurance

    News, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 31/03/2016

    » So what's the latest? Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon said the draft charter by the Meechai Ruchupan-led Constitution Drafting Committee -- yes, the one with a wholly-appointed Senate and fixed senator posts for armed forces and police chiefs -- is up for the referendum and, I quote, "No one will dare to touch it."

    Abstractions and acquaintances

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 09/03/2016

    » As the title "Dusadee + Dusit + Lovers + Dead Ones" suggests, Dusadee Huntrakul's current exhibition at Chulalongkorn University's The Art Center is not exactly a solo show, but a bit of a reunion.

    Through the look of glass

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 14/10/2015

    » 'By The Glass", a current show at Serindia Gallery by British artist Louise Truslow, is perched somewhere between fine and decorative arts. Most of the kiln-formed glasses are bowl-shaped, yet, displayed against a lit table, they become more like abstract sculptures, immediately rid of function and practicality.

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

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 19/11/2014

    » At Yet-Space, there was fried chicken which looked like KFC but tasted worse. At Speedy Grandma, the hipsters, as usual, seemed perfectly fine with Asahi draught as their sole sustenance. At Bangkok University Gallery there was food but I wasn't there in time to see what it was. In this month's column, which rounds up the best food served in the capital's art scene, The Jam Factory Gallery was a sure winner.

    The art of activism

    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.

    Lion's share

    » The night was lively around the neighbourhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés last Saturday for the opening of this year's Paris Déco Off, an annual event where more than 100 home-furnishing-fabrics brands join to showcase their latest designs. But there was perhaps more buzzing than anywhere else down the quaint Rue de Furstenberg where the Jim Thompson showroom is situated.

    By approval

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 26/10/2016

    » The most pressing issue in the capital's art scene this month is, of course, the well-being of some hundred carp put in the temporary pool as part of photographer Rapat Bunduwanich's "Photo Festival", a show whose title tricks us into thinking that there are other people in the show.
