Photo Exhibition : Tourists

Exhibition : Tourists
by Dow Wasiksiri
on December 11, 2010 - January 30, 2011
at Kathmandu Photo Gallery, Bangkok

In ‘Tourists’, famous Thai photographer Dow Wasiksiri trains his sensitive, observant eye on a new tribe of humans. Ignoring landscapes and historic monuments, Dow turned his camera instead on the strange customs and dress of his fellow tourists, local and foreign. These colourful, cartoonish candid shots reveal, beyond the need for amusement, their subjects’ yearning to see themselves as the discoverer of new worlds, before heading back to the humdrum struggle of their daily lives.

Current sometime ripple so brilliant
Sometime swiftly aggressive
Sometime stand still lengthy
And sometime furious cruelty
Life is just as same as that current
Being bond from an ancient times
Even face to crisis time
Worthiness aesthesia still exist for eternity

I’d like to dedicate the series of this paintings as to spiritualize as the reflection about emotional and memory from one Thai who concern of flooding crisis in our country right now. Especially to those home and family which have been drowning and being flood out. Nevertheless all Siamese didn’t keep ignoring on that disaster, we’ve gathering of kindness and sharing of necessary things to help every home and life at once. Then I’ve realized and aware of our way of Thai life which bond and stand for help each other and ready to handle of un-expecting situation with peacefully.

"Revive Dialogue" By Narakorn Sittites

DOB Hualamphong Gallery will hold the art exhibition:

"Revive Dialogue"
By Narakorn Sittites
From December 7, 2010 – January 13, 2011
At DOB Hualamphong Gallery

"It seems that we have all traveled way too far that we cannot remember the reason behind the beginning of life. When I tried to walk back to that place, along the memory lane I placed together pictures after pictures and found out that the place had already become blur, stranded and things were nowhere near active. They were merely there while the reasons and balance had been long gone. I remained silent in order to observe everything with my new eyes called wisdom. Wisdom helped me reconstruct this relationship of life and resurrect my own identity." The revive dialogue between the artist and the beginning of life has started again through the surrealism oil and acrylic paintings in which not only reflect his profound ideas but also the equally fine technique and talent.

the Classroom By Suthee Kunawichayanont and Promtum Worawut

the Classroom

A Two – Person Exhibition

By Suthee Kunawichayanont and Promtum Worawut

At Numthong Gallery

1129/29 Co-op Housing Bldg, Thoedumri Road, Dusit, Bangkok 10300

In the context of Thai contemporary art, the topic of “education” is often rendered in a critical and sarcastic tone, since this is what everyone has directly experienced, mostly with a doubtful mind. This time, education is seen through the eyes of Suthee Kunawichayanont, an artist who has long been criticizing the concept of being Thai, especially the structure and manifestation of power in language and education, which are always emphasized in his visual arts. Now his works will be co-exhibited with works by Phromtum Worawut, a recent graduate from Bangkok University. Although Phromtum is a new name in the art community, his works make distinguished appearance with frustration towards the educational system. Launching this exhibition with a senior artist like Suthee, he will present two-dimensional works which satirize the “multiple-choice” society in an unexpectedly interesting way.

Beyond images in the works of both artists is an experience imbued with elements of sarcastic black comedy in a quiet but unreliable atmosphere. It brings us back to the time when we were students sitting in a classroom, a familiar circumstance which had consumed a part of our lives since earliest childhood.

The exhibition will be held on November 27 – December 18, 2010.

The inauguration ceremony will be on November 27, 2010, at 6 pm - 8 pm.llery, Silom Galleria

A Brief View Of Everything By Justin Mills and Franco Angeloni

A Brief View Of Everything
By Justin Mills and Franco Angeloni

At The Art Center, Center of Academic Resources, Chulalongkorn University

November 8 – December 25, 2010

Opening Reception: Thursday November 11, 2010, 6-8:30pm

How we see the world influences the world we live in. In times of great chaos and conflict, there is often a desperate need to find an explanation as to why a certain problem occurs and what will be the solution to that problem. Based on facts as much as assumptions, referencing philosophies as much as statistics, debates and discussions are formed to address ‘the truth’ of ‘the matter’ and reach a consensus on a resolution.

A Brief View Of Everything, a two-person exhibition by British artist Justin Mills and Dutch/Italian artist Franco Angeloni, offers itself as a platform to engage the viewer in this dialogue. Featuring Mills’ iconic '48 Portraits Of God' series and Angeloni’s combination of messages and happenings, the show creates a challenge to people’s perception and proposes a different view, or different views, with which we can see the world, ourselves and one another. At times shocking and indefinite, their art attempts to widen any fixed, narrow and judgmental point of view we may have and gives a glimpse of perspectives that are more open and inclusive, even when those perspectives are difficult for us to take in.

Justin Mills
48 Portraits Of God

What do Lady Gaga, Nazi gas chambers, Prince Siddartha and Japanese bondage all have in common? They are all God according to British artist Justin Mills, who suggests that 'perhaps God is Everything and Everything is God' and he attempts to make this possibility more real in his paintings. After twenty five years of studying the world's spiritual philosophies he has come to understand that this simple, profound proposition of non-duality is found at the core of all the great wisdom traditions. It is the intrinsic, underlying unity of all things indicated in the art of all the great religions that he is now trying to reveal in a new form of post-post-modern art, or 'integral art', as it transcends and includes as much as possible. This is art concerned more with Self-expression than mere self-expression. But these paintings are not just illustrations for a spiritual philosophy, their provocative ambiguity gives the viewer plenty to do in terms of interpretation, and yet they can also be enjoyed simply for their radiant beauty.

Mills says: “When the word 'God' is used in the titles of my paintings it does not refer to the orthodox Christian notion of an external, all-powerful, judgmental being. It refers more to something beyond good and evil, something internal and external, both transcendent and imminent, something that American philosopher Ken Wilber describes, in his book ‘The Integral Vision’, as:

'a ground of all being; a universal consciousness; a pure, infinite, transcendental, selfless Self; beyond any conceptualizations at all, but as simple and obvious as the person who is reading this...'”

Franco Angeloni
Dutch/Italian artist Franco Angeloni’s art is full of curiosity and the wish to understand life and perfect it – life that is a mystery no one has a complete understanding of but marvelously unfolds itself in front of the eyes of the person who lives it every second. Everything that exists in nature can become a motive for Angeloni to speculate upon and to use as a means to shape his work and thus get a better insight into the world.

As a conceptual response to Mills’ ‘48 Portraits Of God’, Angeloni created ‘messages’ – some of which have been laser cut in metal plates, and ‘happenings’ that are curious and playful. Yet, these works ask several difficult questions about one’s perception and attitude toward living. One message says ‘Welcome to the 8th Floor’ despite the fact there is no 8th Floor in the building of The Art Center. With one special work entitled ‘Device To Enable Myopic People To Capture Mr/Mrs Ambition From A Closer Distance’, visitors are challenged to scrutinize the panoramic view from the balcony of The Art Center with binoculars to discover a neon work which is actually hidden in the cityscape. Anyone can participate of their own free will. Also, lying beneath his most recent work is the teachings of Indian philosopher J. Krishnamurti. In Angeloni’s works, the viewer will see the artist’s reflection on the master’s philosophy, which addresses all things humankind has been dealing with for thousands of years, from love and fear to desire and envy, from power-gaining to a true inner mind revolution, from spirituality to the disastrous consequences of human ambition.

Angeloni says: “I am not expecting anybody out there to make this world better for me, for us all. The revolution I am talking about is not that which occurs in the Houses of legislators or the Parliament, or in the streets by mass demonstrations, or during fights, wars, or in short, in the actions performed by humans in the outside world. Rather, the only revolution that I understand as potentially being able to create a truly radical change is the revolution inside: an inner reconsideration of the way one observes oneself and life and honestly sees the rotten and corrupting forces in it. Hence, the birth of a sincere and inevitable process of wanting to change it.”
