    Get into the groove -- Madonna is here

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 09/02/2016

    » Yes, Madonna is singing live tonight. And yes, Madonna is definitely by now somewhere in Bangkok, after photos showing her arrive at the airport on Sunday night popped up online, enough for her "children" across Thailand to swoon. As you read this, just take a moment to get this fact registered in your head the Queen of Pop is actually here on the same soil as the rest of us, breathing this same polluted Bangkok air. She could be queuing up for some moo ping for breakfast on the streets, or on the back of a motorcycle to Platinum in search for new looks, we don't know.

    It's a whitewash!

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 31/08/2016

    » Art Matters this month begins with words of congratulations to Speedy Grandma which just celebrated its fourth anniversary this past weekend. After closing down for several months because, according to co-founder Lee Anantawat, "we were just bored and tired", the gallery in Charoen Krung 28 is now back and it's just, well, as fun and slightly dingy as before.

    » Every use of the word "sunlight" in Duncan Macmillan's play Every Brilliant Thing, was replaced with "sunset" by director Pawit Mahasarinand in his Thai adaptation, which has just finished its run at Chulalongkorn University's Sodsai Pantoomkomol Centre for Dramatic Arts last week.

    Wake up and smell the truth

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 10/02/2016

    » During a recent press tour of “Scene From A Wake” by Anup Mathew Thomas, this year’s winner of the Han Nefkens Foundation-BACC Award for Contemporary Art, there wasn’t really a tour. We were left to wander unguided, and consequently left confused, even though the Indian artist was present.

    A calendar for the 99.3%

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/01/2016

    » New year is for new beginnings. This is as much a cliché as it is true. While it is just a new day, we carry the illusion that comes with Jan 1. The past is suddenly forgiven and forgotten, a clean slate: new hobbies, new goals, new habits, new lives, and, of course, new calendars.

    The joke that isn't funny anymore

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/07/2015

    » For quite a while I had managed to completely wipe Gen Prayut out of my mind. By turning off the familiar tune Return Happiness To Thailand as soon as it comes on, by ignoring the latest absurdities shared on Facebook and by not engaging in a conversation criticising our dear leader and the NCPO, it was a state of blissful apathy. Without news consumption, anger was starved and eventually died. As the state of calm ignorance shifted in, life was OK again.

    Bambi gets sexy

    » In more than one way, ongoing performance The Last Schomburgk’s Deer at Crescent Moon Space is starkly raw and honest pornography.
