    » 1. The Bangkok Biennial has brought to town its fair share of exhibitions, as pavilions are dispersed throughout the city. Opening this weekend, the Supernatural Pavilion is taking place in Care Nang Leung temple with a performance and video installation The 5x5 Legged Stool, based on the 1962 dance score by Ann Halpin, The Five Legged Stool. In Bangkok, a new performance by Mari Fukutome comes to life, captured by video artist Chulayarnnon Siriphol, and explores the ways in which contemporary dance is recorded and archived in time. Viewers can visit the pavilion until tomorrow. Performances will take place at 8pm at Wat Care Nang Lerng, Phaniang Road, Khwaeng Wat Sommanat and Khet Pom Prap Sattru Phai.

    » An office, an artist's studio, a Burmese tea house, the "Yawnghwe Office In Exile" at Cartel Artspace encompasses all these spaces and more -- for an office does not only need to contain a desk and a computer, but it is primarily a location for the production of thoughts and ideas.

    Beyond the conflict

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 15/08/2018

    » A garden, a public beach, two art spaces -- "Re/Form/Ing Patani" spans four different venues. This decentralised pavilion of the Bangkok Biennial could almost appear as a stand-alone event, owing to its size -- the curators invited 23 Thai and international artists to take part in the project -- and its multiple sites.

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 08/08/2018

    » What is in an artefact? Evidence of cultural or historical interest is restrained and appears unostentatious in Dusadee Huntrakul's solo exhibition "There Are More Monsoon Songs Elsewhere". Nevertheless, through the superposition of timelines and geographical locations, the imagined rituals, songs and dances of the everyday come to life at 100 Tonson Gallery.

    » Are public restrooms a democratic space? Thai artist Thitibodee Rungteerawattananon believes so. Both a private and a shared area at the same time, toilets don't escape tacit rules of social interaction or the politics of access, representation, sex and gender imposed on other spaces.

    Shining a light at the Bangkok Biennial

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 11/07/2018

    » 'Coming Soon" sounds like the stuff of theatrical trailers. "Coming soon to a city near you" evokes the reproduction and decentralisation of a system, an ever-multiplying model and the balancing act between a one-size-fits-all mould and local specificities.

    Three months of edgy grassroots art

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 06/07/2018

    » Bangkok's first-ever Biennial officially kicked off on Sunday night with an evening aerobics session on the Chao Phraya riverside at a popular spot for dwellers and sports lovers beneath the Rama VIII bridge. The choice of location -- anchored in Bangkok residents' daily lives -- and the disruptive event itself -- complete with ceremonial opening remarks and a ribbon-cutting moment -- set the tone (i.e. caustic, critical and edgy) for the many art exhibitions and activities to be held in Bangkok and elsewhere in Thailand in the coming months.
