    One for the books

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 18/08/2016

    » Bangkok just can't get enough of literary input, and we are talking about just the month of August alone. Last month there was the Bangkok Book Festival, and ongoing until this Sunday is the much-hyped Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, offering 60-80% discounts on 2 million copies of English language books from every imaginable genre. It's a fair where many have spent money on books they probably won't get to read in this lifetime.

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 26/08/2016

    Art to float your boat

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 17/08/2016

    » A watermelon is in the centre of the screen, and we watch it being gradually squeezed as two pairs of hands continuously put rubber bands around it. On another screen, a woman is in the middle of nowhere and suddenly takes out a toaster before hurling it away with all her strength like a hammer throw.

    Born, bred (and perhaps brewed)

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 19/08/2016

    » The place looks like a regular house in the suburban Pak Kret district, roughly one-hour drive out of Bangkok. Look closer, however, the house appears unlived, more like a warehouse with some sort of operation going on inside, and a walk round to its backyard reveals five massive hothouses which span 1,600m².

    The fear is here

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 03/08/2016

    » With any political fight, it's hardly the end when street clashes are over -- camps demolished, protesters injured or dead and the authorities able to curb the movement or finally comply with its demands. The fight continues and what's perhaps more significant than action on the streets is finding the desired spot in a page in history, in people's minds. The question is: how are we to be remembered?

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 04/08/2016

    » At the beginning of the play Me, Myself, And The Mind Of The Insignificance, Pathipon Adsavamahapong's directorial debut, which finished last Sunday at Crescent Moon Space, actor Pathavee Thepkraiwan proclaimed: "This is a place within oneself.

And we realised that we were about to go on a trip straight into the character's mind, and the show was not supposed to be fully comprehended but simply felt.

    A national blindside for contemporary art

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

    » Ten million baht was the sum that 81-year-old Waraporn Suravadi, the caretaker of the Bangkok Folk's Museum, needed to buy the plot of land next to her museum, which was to become the site of an eight-storey building. That construction project could potentially spoil the view and atmosphere of the museum -- a well-preserved war-era teak house that displays rare and valuable items dating back more than 100 years, to the reign of King Rama V.
