    The food stylist

    Muse, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 12/09/2015

    » Paweethida Tanjasiri's som tum doesn’t look like any we’ve ever seen before. Her chops of string beans are of a purplish hue and the sliced tomatoes vary in colour. Along with the usual beans and dried shrimps, corn kernels, pomegranate seeds and slices of beetroot are dotted against the white wide-rim plate. Fear not, the 26-year-old is not a radical, nor an antinationalist trying to undermine what has long been part of our culinary identity, however, but a food stylist.

    Moments, machines and man

    » Despite its young age, Soy Sauce Factory has in the past year made itself a proper addition to the Bangkok photography scene alongside Serindia Gallery, Kathmandu Photo Gallery and RMA Institute.

    From stuffed rats to geometric abstraction

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

    » The works in “Synthesis”, on display at Chulalongkorn University’s The Art Center, are best enjoyed individually. From a massive acrylic painting which playfully questions the Thai education system, geometric abstraction portraying urban landscapes to a dead rat stuffed and mounted, the show isn’t exactly “the act of combining separate things, ideas etc into a complete whole”, as the title suggests.

    Odd mediums at the forefront

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 24/06/2015

    » From pixelated photographs, to paintings on photographic paper and sculptures carved into wooden chopping boards, this month's art scene is a delightful experience — even the mediums just mentioned themselves have much to say.

    Ignorance is shameful, dangerous bliss

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

    » Not having followed the news lately, I feel considerably less angry. Having only heard from afar what the junta is up to and what the latest claptrap in the name of “goodness” is from glimpses of other people’s Facebook posts and news headlines, I am enjoying a phase of relatively happy apathy.

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

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 29/04/2015

    » It took me almost two hours to get to the opening of Speedy Grandma's new exhibition last Friday, due to the rush-hour traffic on Rama IV and from Surawong Road to the old town of Charoen Krung. A parking spot around there is also impossible to find. This being the hottest month of the year (some say the hottest in 55 years), the 10-minute walk from my car to the gallery felt like one additional hour.

    Constructing the moment

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 22/04/2015

    » Photography, for many, is about the ability and sense of aesthetics in capturing a fleeting moment. For 29-year-old photographer Charit Pusiri, however, that moment can be planned and constructed, with cast models, production crew, artificial rain and months of editing.

    Trainwreck from top to bottom

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 03/03/2015

    » Perhaps what one remembers best about a third-class train ride in Thailand is the shower you take afterwards — the lumps of dust coming out of your nose, the grimy water running off your body and how washing your hair three times isn't enough to take the odour of metal away.

    Facades of normality

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 25/02/2015

    » Try clicking "join" to just a few exhibition opening events on Facebook and you will realise how overwhelming the Bangkok art scene can actually be. There are notifications of pre-opening private views, pre-opening talks, opening parties, special performances, and, of course, an exhibition closing party again. These plethora of events are totally understandable, however, because art spaces in Bangkok are becoming more about being a fun place to hang out, and, it has to be said, art does get better after a few beers.

    Making connections, not cash

    » Artist Pisitakun Kuantalaeng, 28, was once a Yellow Shirt. In less than a decade, Pisitakun went from a fervent supporter of anti-Thaksin politics and airport seizures to an artist who took to the streets after the junta seized power last May.
