    A note on Thailand Biennale

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 02/01/2019

    » One recent morning at Nopphrat Thara beach, the high tide flooded the lower part of a strange, interwoven structure.

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 11/04/2014

    » Dirty Songkran water splashed by impertinent teenagers is nothing compared to the Mother of All Liquid: the Biblical (and Koranic) flood unleashed by God to punish corrupt, sinful men. It’s up to Noah — who, like Suthep Thaugsuban, is the Chosen One on the greatest mission in his life — to save mankind, or only the righteous among mankind, from the aquatic calamity by building the Ark that would carry the good seeds of humanity into the cleaner, less evil world.
