    Narrative of Monuments

    Life, Published on 17/01/2018

    » Kata Sangkhae's conceptual photographs of the Democracy Monument may inspire hope or despair according to the viewer's interpretation. Against the night sky, at times blurry and then in sharp focus but without detail definition, his non-naturalistic images of blinding light on the golden replica of the constitution convey tall white shapes evocative of disembodied spirits.

    Fishing for a Pleats Please Issey Miyake exclusive

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 18/01/2018

    » If you're a fan of Pleats Please Issey Miyake, drop by their duplex store at Siam Discovery for an exclusive limited collection which celebrates the brand's 10th anniversary in Thailand. Designed specifically for this event and available only in Thailand, the Japanese brand has decided to splash out with the mede-tai motif, representing the Japanese red sea bream. As this fish is a major part of traditional Japanese festivals and is also consumed for its auspiciousness, it's been chosen for the collection as a symbol of good fortune and celebration. Most importantly, however, the tai was chosen for being a homonym of "Thai", and to honour its decade in Thailand.

    In search of big ideas

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 18/01/2018

    » BangkokEdge Festival, billed as an "idea festival", returns to its old quarters of Bangkok this weekend. Spearheaded by MR Narisa Chakrabongse, the two-day event is a vibrant smorgasbord of literature, music, art, history and politics, anchored in the charming venues of Museum Siam, Chakrabongse Villas and Rajini School. There will be talks -- plenty of panels and discussions, on subjects ranging from "What Makes The Chao Phraya A World Monument?" to "The Power Of Slam Poetry", from "Populism, Religion and Neo-Nationalism In The 21st Century" to "Years Of Living Dangerously: A Woman's Take On War". The list of participants is starry, including writers, journalists, poets, historians and artists, Thai and international. Come evening, the lawn of Museum Siam will play host to film screenings (Pop Aye on Saturday and Citizen Dog on Sunday), as well as concerts by Hugo, Yena, Rasmee Isan Soul and more.

    FAR from heaven

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 18/01/2018

    » The path to heaven, as paved by B-Floor Theatre at Democrazy Theatre Studio, is literally a dark, slippery and holey (no pun intended) one. Ornanong Thaisriwong's latest creation, Sawan Arcade, is a stunning spectacle. But its political message is not nearly as potent or affecting as her previous solo performance, Bang La Merd.

    Tongue-in-cheek

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 19/01/2018

    » It has been a while a since I smiled while reading a book. My sense of humour is good and I don't hold back my laughter at something that tickles my funny bone. I find Thai double-entendres most amusing. This reviewer wishes books were funny. Those called hilarious by critics simply aren't.

    On unhappy women and clumsy hitmen

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 19/01/2018

    » Pen-ek Ratanaruang's movies -- eight of them in the past 20 years and the ninth slated for a Feb 1 release -- are often inhabited by unhappy women and clumsy hitmen. Unhappy, yet those women are neither resigned nor passive. Clumsy, yet those hitmen have aspirations, dreams and worries like people in other respectable professions. A genre geek, Pen-ek likes crime thrillers, but one of Thailand's best-known directors is also a diligent investigator of human relationships and man-woman dynamics, their eccentric and mysterious rapport and misunderstandings that determine the course of the world, and of cinema.
