    Becoming blissfully aware

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/05/2015

    » Jenjira Pongpas has no clue what Blissfully Yours, the 2002 Cannes Film Festival's Un Certain Regard prize-winning film by director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, is all about. Not while first reading the script, not while acting it in, not after the film won the prestigious award that heralded Thai art house cinema, and not even today.

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

    » 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.

    Cool, complicated art

    » This month's Art Matters runs the whole page. Should you find the idea unbearably tedious, here's a solution: the next paragraph pretty much sums up what's going on in the Bangkok art scene and, once done, you can go continue with more enjoyable things in life. Here goes:

    Exhibition captures killer shots

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

    » At around 7pm on May 13, 2010, Maj Gen Khattiya Sawasdipol, or Seh Daeng (Red Commander), was shot in the head while giving an interview to foreign reporters. Photographer Steve Pace was there and took the key picture. His image of the collapsed and bloodied general being carried away, published in several major newspapers worldwide, is what people still remember about this still-unresolved political assassination.

    » 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.

    Intricate, abstract, wild

    » More than anything, Filipino artist Louie Cordero's paintings at Bangkok University Gallery's (BUG) current show, "Golden Rule", are fun. On the floor, traces of spilled paint are still visible — as BUG's artist-in-residence, the gallery's second floor was used as Cordero's studio.

    Freedom, creatively speaking

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 22/02/2017

    » In many ways, "Condemned To Be Free", a duo exhibition which just opened last week at WTF Gallery, is in a constant state of flux. On the first floor, artist Kritsada Duchsadeevanich looks simultaneously at the transformation of his own political ideology and that of the country's political history. On the upper floor, painter Tawan Wattuya leaves out his watercolours and turns the gallery into an experimental space where the lines between art and activism, the authority of an artist and voice of ordinary people, are blurred.

    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.

    Unveiling layers of himself

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/02/2017

    » A photography show on display at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre's Studio room on the fourth floor is anything but pictorial in the traditional sense. Confronting viewers right after entering is a collage of shots arranged together, kaleidoscope-like. Nearby, four images placed together capture the photographer's motion while walking. Further inside, the photographer's self-portrait is ghostly transparent as a result of an experiment with long exposure.

    Silent scream

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 09/11/2016

    » Like most other entertainment and cultural events, artist Sina Wittayawiroj's solo exhibition "Beat Around The Bush" at Bridge Art Space was cancelled last month due to the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. It was not the right time, Sina said, because this is a sensitive time and his set of multidisciplinary works attempt to speak about a certain chapter in history, which has remained a taboo.
