U LUN GYWE - Feasting The Female Form

U LUN GYWE - Feasting The Female Form

Book Launch and Art Exhibition

Book Launch: June 18 at 5 pm

Exhibition Dates: June 18 - July 16
Opening on June 18 at 5 pm
U Lun Gywe is unfortunately too old and frail to travel. Shireen Naziree will be present to sign the book and talk about
the art works.

Art Exhibition
With an artistic practice that spans more than fifty years, eighty year old U Lun Gywe is regarded as Burma's most prominent master painter and one of Southeast Asia's most important senior artists. U Lun Gywe's figurative works of Burmese women are a celebration of their inherent beauty and grace, which he renders through his unique Impressionist style of painting that is a combination of orientalist discipline and western artistic practices. His paintings of dancers and village women, rendered with a vibrant palette and sweeping brushstrokes, are filled with movement - a contrast to his quiet sketches of nudes that aptly reflect his western art training.

Book Launch
Commemorating the more than fifty year artistic career of 80 year old U Lun Gywe – Thavibu Gallery is launching a limited edition coffee table book “Feasting the Female Form” in conjunction with a specially curated exhibition of recent figurative works by the artist. The text is written by the international art historian and curator Shireen Naziree.

This is a very high quality limited edition book, printed in 500 numbered copies. It comes in a boxed edition and each book contains the Giclée art print Nude with Apple - printed on archival paper, signed by the artist U Lun Gywe, and numbered in the same edition as the book.

The book was written and produced in Malaysia and Thailand, and printed by a Singapore company on imported archival paper from Japan.

Have We Forgot? by Charit Pusiri

ARDEL’s Third Place Gallery will hold the art exhibition:

Have We Forgot?
By Charit Pusiri

From April 21 – May 27, 2011
Open Reception on Thursday April 21, 2011 at 6.30 pm At ARDEL’s Third Place Gallery

The exhibition “Have We Forgot?” by Charit Pusiri presents a new series of photography toying with the concept of “Thainess”, an attribute that some Thai people may have overlooked or some even try to forget.

The artist ponders over the said idea, investigating whether there is still Thainess left in the society or has it completely been forgotten? Whether it is because of the familiarity, the bombarding of lifestyle and the trend of globalization that cast over every corner of the world, it clearly has invaded the identity of Thai style of living, culture and tradition so much that now it almost becomes inseparable. In this first-time-ever solo exhibition, this young gifted artist will intrigue viewers with photographs of human, animals and objects in which will leave an open end for them to interpret or question whether they have already forgotten their root and who they really are.
ARDEL’s Third Place Gallery requests for your support to kindly promote the upcoming exhibition.
For further information, kindly contact: 02-422-2092, 086-890-2762 Fax: 02-422-2091

Contemporary Photography Exhibition "Lonely Land" by Cattleya Jaruthavee

The Pikture Gallery is proud to introduce and present

a Contemporary Photography Exhibition

"Lonely Land"

by Cattleya Jaruthavee

Opening reception: Thursday 19th May 2011 at 6:30 pm.
This summer exhibition will show a series of photography by up-and-coming female photographer Cattleya Jaruthavee.

This is her first solo exhibition, only at The Pikture Gallery.

“ Cattleya Jaruthavee portrays the effects of rural - urban migration in Thailand by examining the Northeastern region of Esarn. Emptiness has evolved from young adults leaving the area for larger cities, in search of work opportunities. What's left amidst the lonely landscapes are two extremes – the very young and old. Esarn is also where Thailand's bulk of rice is grown; a job left for the aged... full of uncertainty due to the area's vulnerability to droughts. Esarn's poverty is often looked down upon by larger cities, forgetting their rich culture and rice fields which turn the country's economy. Through photographic documentation, Lonely Land depicts aspects of Northeastern Thailand often forgotten. ”

The exhibition will be on display until Thursday 16th of June 2011

Nisa expresses her true self through symbols of fine arts. Thanistha proposes her way to fill in the cracks caused by the conflict in the society. Atitaya focuses on the connection and the effect Feng-Shui has on the life of Vincent Van Gogh, the world renowned artistic legend. Witaya indulges himself into the human mind once it is effected by the provocations in life. Anecha shoots the life of the homeless at Sanamluang, portraying the caging freedom through his lens.

Human/Time/Space By 17 artists

DOB Hualamphong Gallery will hold the art exhibition:

By 17 artists
Curated by Ohm Phanphiroj
Open reception on Thursday, 17 March, 2011 at 6.30 PM
Exhibition period : March 17 – April 24, 2011

Human/Time/Space is an exhibition that investigates how humans construct the concepts of time and space and attempt to make sense out of them. Human beings are complex; perhaps nowhere more so than when combining concepts of time and space. Philosophically, humans are trapped in a concept of time and space, and we function and try to make sense of how time and space affect us. Time and space do not exist in a physical world as they have no attributes. We understand them because our minds create meanings for them and use them as an indicator to how to operate and go about life.

This theme allowed each artist to interpret and use their imagination -- coming up with a story, a vision, a commentary—a unique take which is solid, artistic, and worthy.

A highlight of the show is the inclusion of both highly recognized international photographers and young local student artists and professionals, as we explored and searched for some best young new artists to support.

The artworks range from the banal subjective to the emotionally charged and provoking images and from documentary and imaginative figures.

Possessed/Poach by Preeyachanok Ketsuwan

Tang Contemporary Art – Bangkok presents


A Solo Exhibition by Preeyachanok Ketsuwan

Exhibition period: March 24 – April 30 2011

Venue :
Tang Contemporary Art - Bangkok
Unit B-28 (Basement), Silom Galleria
919/1 Silom Road (Soi 19), Bangkok 10500 Thailand

OPENING RECEPTION: Tang Contemporary Art cordially invites you to the opening party on
Thursday, 24 March 2011, 6.30 pm onwards.

CLOSING EVENT: A performing by the artist Preeyachanok Ketsuwan and her women relatives
on Saturday, 30 April 2011, 15.00 pm onwards.

For some time sex has been defined as the biological difference between men and women, and gender as Feminine/masculine, male/female, women/men, boy/girl - terms of sexual and gender division like these permeate the way we think and talk about ourselves and each other. On most occasions we found ourselves easily believe in something just the way we were told, that makes me wonder whether this ease is illusory? One may speculate whether being a woman necessarily implies being "feminine". One may question why young women are often referred to as girls, while men are seldom referred to as boys. Is living in a non-stereotypically feminine manner a reliable indication that one is a bad woman?

There is a folk story of a lady who cannot proof her profound love to her man because her hair was not long enough to stretch through the pagoda’s base, and another folklore about how a women being punished if she love someone before getting married thus led to many queries. Who assign rules to women? To whom women being Possessed? “Possessed/Poach” examines the inquiries in “being woman” under the social-constructed role we might never seriously investigate the underling reasons. Or maybe the only reason is being woman.

Henri Pompidor, Conductor

The Siam Society under Royal Patronage proudly presents W.A. Mozart’s Requiem, to be performed by the Mahidol University Baroque Choir and Orchestra under the baton of Henri Pompidor.

Universally recognized as one of the greatest choral masterpieces, the Requiem has long been shrouded in mystery. In July 1791, Mozart undertook the commission for an Austrian nobleman, little knowing that he was to write the requiem for himself: he died on December 5 of the same year, at the early age of 35. Inevitably, the secrecy surrounding the anonymous commission, the circumstances of Mozart's death, the unfinished state of the work, and its completion by his copyist, the composer Süssmayr, have precipitated two centuries of romantic speculation and scholarly controversy.

The completed work follows the traditional Latin liturgy and was first performed on January 2, 1793 at a benefit concert for Mozart’s widow Constanza. Since then, it has gained tremendous recognition and has been performed at many prestigious occasions including the memorial services of Joseph Haydn, Frederic Chopin and John F. Kennedy.

In 2002, on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, a worldwide “Rolling Requiem” project was launched in memory of the 3,000 victims, consisting of a continuous series of performances of the Requiem, circling the earth, crossing all time zones, each beginning at 8:47 a.m. local time, thus marking the time the first plane hit the World Trade Centre.

This masterpiece choral music will be performed at the Siam Society, 131 Soi Asoke, Sukhumvit 21, on Wednesday, March 16, 2011 at 7.30 p.m.

A second concert is scheduled March 18th at Assumption Cathedral Bangkok (near Oriental Hotel) at 7.30 p.m (to be confirmed).

Hidden Flowers by Nguyen Thi Chau Giang, Vietnam

Art Exhibition: Hidden Flowers
Artist: Nguyen Thi Chau Giang, Vietnam
Dates: 23 April – 14 May 2011
Venue: Thavibu Gallery
Curator: Shireen Naziree

Open: Monday – Saturday: 11:00 – 19:00

Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition Hidden Flowers with silk paintings by the female Vietnamese artist Nguyen Thi Chau Giang. In Hidden Flowers, her first solo show since 2004, Nguyen Thi Chau Giang looks back to her Vietnamese artistic roots as she explores the formal issues of traditional silk painting. In constructing her visual narratives, Giang draws on sources both classic and contemporary as she mediates on the typical Vietnamese feminine
archetype. Well versed in feminist theories that impact contemporary Vietnamese society, she resists infiltrating her work with the seduction of poetic embellishments as she circumvents typical romantic narratives commonly associated with Vietnamese silk painting.

Such restraint pays off in a body of work that comprises 17 paintings in which Giang explores the contradictions Vietnamese women endure within Vietnam’s advancing contemporary social environment. All of these works explore the fragility of relationships and emotions with a sensitive eye, and they are engaging for that reason. But their formal deftness is also remarkable, as is the richness of their pictorial nuance, which amplifies the psychological interest of the works without drifting into melodrama.

Silk paintings originated in China, and a handful of Vietnamese artists have adopted the art form to produce compelling contemporary art works.

Nguyen Thi Chau Giang is 35 years old, was born in Hanoi and lives in Ho Chi Minh City where she graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. She has participated in several exhibitions internationally, such as in Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, Australia, Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom and the USA, including a solo show at the Columbia University, New York. Her works are found in the museum collections of Singapore Art Museum and The Hermitage, St Petersburg.

18 February to 10 April 2011

Gallery 8th floor, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre

Bangkok - French Embassy, Alliance Francais, and Bangkok Art and Culture Centre present a Thai-French Fashion Photography Exhibition ; Fashion3, giving a 360 degree view of Fashion: on one side of the camera, fabulous Fashion photos, portraits of creators and models, and on the other side, exceptional photographers.

France is world-renowned for its Haute Couture and its catwalk shows; Thailand also has many fashion creators. Thanks to modern communications, Fashion has become a world passion, and photography, much more than television, has widely contributed to this phenomenon. There are countless Fashion photos that have become iconic and as famous as their subjects. But the names of the photographers are rarely known. As they are necessarily behind the camera, they are retiring people and rarely in the limelight. This year, with 3 exhibits in 1, is giving a 360 degree view of Fashion: on one side of the camera, fabulous Fashion photos, portraits of creators and models, and on the other side, exceptional photographers.

Fashion3 is the title chosen by LA FETE for 3 exhibitions in one: “Fashion Story(ies)” / “Moonlight” / “Samsara: The beauty of Birth, Death and Everything else in between (repeat)”.

Survival Techniques: narratives of resistance

Survival Techniques: narratives of resistance
A video art exhibition curated by Davide Quadrio

At The Art Center, Center of Academic Resources, Chulalongkorn University
February 26 – March 26, 2011
Opening Reception: 26 February, 2011 at 4-7pm

Is it about happiness or about failure (Zhang Peili), Is it the pride of being pure blood or the shame of be born bastards (Shen Shaomin), will you be offended or will you have a good laugh (Rainer Ganahl), is it about the obvious or the unexpected truth (Yang Zhenzhong), can you keep up with tolerance or will you be easily attracted by intolerance (Artur Zmijewski)?

Curator’s Statement
In this show, artists explore the realm of the doubts, the borders and the passages. It is not about the obvious, it is not about a simple reaction. It is the art of dissimulation, yet it is incredibly true.

In this video-based exhibition, we invite the audience to take time and deepen into the realm of the uncertainty. The artworks presented are videos in various forms: documentaries, performances, conceptual works, and interviews.

It takes time to go through all of it. We are no longer used to spending time and concentrating for long: we live in the realm of the quickly digested images and information, but there is a revolutionary need for rediscovering attention and dedication. It is not about consuming another exhibition as a social event. Instead, it is a very intimate experience – the one proposed here. It is a time of pause, almost a praying time, I would say.

When I have been asked to put together this show, I thought of my last years in Thailand and Bangkok and I wanted to express through this curatorial adventure my own connection with the Thailand I discovered. When I think back of the last two years in Bangkok, with all the unrest and social and political uncertainty, the works chosen for this show seem to me very significant and universal. It is quite a testimony to the uneasiness that I feel – and I am sure many other people do – when thinking about nationalism, ethnicity and power mirrored by a personal/private space, poetry and the death as beauty, or as Bohumil Hrabal explains in “I served the King of England”:

“The essence of life was questioning about death, how will I behave when my hour comes, and that basically death, or rather that questioning oneself, is a dialogue from an infinite and eternal visual angle. (And that) the resolution of the problem of death is already the beginning of thinking in terms of beauty and the beginning of thinking about beauty because it is savoring the absurdity of one’s path that anyway will end with a premature exit, that pleasure of experiencing one’s own demise, that fills man with bitterness and therefore with beauty.”

"Super Summer!!" By Parichart Suphaphan

ARDEL's Third Place Gallery requests the pleasure of your company at the opening reception of

"Super Summer!!"

By Parichart Suphaphan

on Tuesday March 8, 2011 : 6.30 PM

At ARDEL’s Third Place Gallery

Super Summer!! is an art exhibition showcases artworks in all four major mediums; from colorful acrylic paintings to drawings, from two dimensional printmakings to three dimensional sculptures. These artworks are created by the talented female artist Parichart Suphaphan. Parichart sarcastically reflects the society notion that bombard people with false judgment, the notion that tells people to mold themselves as one of the characters in soap operas. Parichart uses her self portrait as the main figure in her artworks in order to send the messages to viewers. The bright color, the lively characters in different postures and gestures, the humor. These show the artist’s optimism, the warmth she has been received from her family and the confidence that set her free from all illusions.

The exhibition will be on view from March 8 – April 8, 2011 at ARDEL’s Third Place Gallery.

By Bhensine Nilavadhanananda
February 24 – March 24, 2011
Opening reception on Thursday, February 24, 2011, 6 pm. @Galerie N

Most of Bhensine’s paintings depict landscapes in many countries.
It is obvious that Bhensine does not mean to depict reality but
to concentrate more on the harmonic relation of things presented in the frame,
The highlight of her works lies in the use of colors that reflect the mastering of color technique.
One can feel the artist’s freedom in applying color to respond to her own imagination and feelings,
resulting from both external and internal perception.
Bhensine Nilavadhanananda has become well know around the art circle of Thailand
in the 15 years through 6 of her individual exhibition and several others jointly displayed with her fellow artist friends.

FREEDOM & JUSTICE? by Jittagarn Kaewtinkoy

19 February - 12 March
by Jittagarn Kaewtinkoy (Thailand)

You are kindly invited for the opening of the exhibition on Saturday 19th Feb 2011 at 17:00 (5 pm)
at Thavibu Gallery

n the forthcoming exhibition, Jittagarn Kaewtinkoy has produced a series of portraits and paintings of well known politicians and of iconic personalities with the intent to explore their sense of commitment towards freedom and justice. It turns out that they often fall into two categories – good and bad. As a person committed to freedom, justice and transparency himself, the artist questions his subjects' intentions and aspirations and whether they are sincere or exploit their positions as leaders and role models.

Jittagarn Kaewtinkoy is 32 years old and is known for his ironic paintings of people in power. He graduated from Rajamonkol University in 2001 and has participated in several exhibitions in Thailand and also in the USA (2010).

Introduction by Steven Pettifor:
Unsurprisingly, Thailand’s artists tend to become more politicised in the wake of dramatic social upheavals and intermittent military interventions. During the student led demonstrations and subsequent crackdowns of 1973 and 1976, artists Pratuang Emjaroen and Prasong Luemuang led the dissenting charge, while after the bloody coup of 1992 it was Vasan Sitthiket along with Chumpon Apisuk and the Ukabat (fireball) performance artists who were quick to voice their hostility to the military takeover.

Thailand’s most recent military putsch of 2006 once again roused artists to visualise interpretations upon the consequential dilemmas facing Thai society. Yet aside from the firebrand Vasan and critical photographer Manit Sriwanichpoom, there have been few overtly political artists to commentate on the entrenched cronyism and corruption that have become the mainstay of Thai politics.

To the neutral observer, Thailand has never appeared a more divided country. This growing disharmony has begun registering and permeating the art of emerging artists, including 32-year-old painter Jittagarn Kaewtinkoy.

“Impromptu” By Naruemon Padsamran


2nd March – 8th May, 2011

By Naruemon Padsamran

Opening reception

Wednesday 2nd March, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

2nd Floor, Sombat Permpoon Gallery

Sombat Permpoon Gallery is delighted to present abstract contemporary paintings and sculptures “ Impromptu ” (Don-sod) by Naruemon Padsamran.

Naruemon’s work is inspired by her appreciation of the unique, lively tempo and conversational style of singing in found in the type of Thai folk music from the Isaan area known as Luk –Tung and Mor-Lam. From this passion for the music, Naruemon creates her art by evolving old Thai folk concert billboards into abstract contemporary paintings and sculptures which convey the “postures” and “rhythm” of Thai Folk music dancers, known as Hang-Kreung. These dancers, usually found performing behind the singers, are moved, from a typical outdoor stage where such concerts are staged, to a gallery space, as part of Naruemon’s vision to communicate the movement and music within a still object.

“Impromptu” Mo-Lam is defined as composing music while in the moment, simultaneously singing or playing an instrument in response to another Mo-Lam band. Naruemon also defines the “Impromptu” series as a conversation within herself, using her success and learning from her failures in the past 3 years to create series of dialogues within her creativity and materials into her improvisation (Don-sod)of Mo-Lam

A Woman’s Dream of the Night Sky

A Woman’s Dream of the Night Sky

I am thrilled by the photographs taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of outer space and distant galaxies. The beauty of these amazing photographs has a mystical quality.

I discovered that I could create a blend of my painting and drawing with photographs of the galaxies, and this discovery has opened a universe of possibilities for my art work.

My experience as a ballet dancer has a significant influence on my work. I am enamored with the beauty of line and movement in dance, and much of my work has focused on capturing the strength, muscle tension, and abandon of dancers in motion. I often give my work the feeling of movement even when the subject isn’t about dance.

Some of my pieces use birds as a focus, and others feature elephants, and even giraffes. There is such a grace and beauty in these animals, that to me is earthly and also has an unearthly quality. I like to blend a combination of the universe and a cloudy blue sky to create a connection between people, animals, the earth, and the stars.

Music is another theme that is a natural for this concept, and my husband, a musician, makes a great model. I often create pieces with forms that are not immediately apparent. I might put an elephant within an elephant, or a small dancer almost hidden against a galactic background. I use colors and patterns that make the form visible only after looking closely.

All of the pieces in this show are cast acrylic collage prints, and all of them have an element of the universe or “night sky.” I created these prints over the past year drawing from my thoughts and dreams about people, Thailand, and my life.

“Spiritual aesthetic and self – actualization from the upcoming female artist”

Obviously that numbers of male artist predominate the female artist.
This does not signify that artpieces from female artist is unacceptable or woman has little interest in art.

Many effect from social, culture and/or environment that do not support woman make the situation occur internationally
and also in Thailand erstwhile.

Social progress develops the way people open themselves in expressing their idea without any sexual limitation including in the art field thuscreate many original artpieces from new female artist. In order to acquire the spiritual aesthetic from woman who has their own concept about their social surrounding, culture influence, self-actualization,and sensuous perception about the sexual influence in creating art ; ID-SATEE – the art exhibition – then becomes one of the supporting art activity for upcoming female artist to exhibit their original inventive

No Rabbit On The Moon by Supachet Bhumakarn

Supachet Bhumakarn089-9501329 / 084-1771799

“No Rabbit On The Moon”Painting Exhibition by Supachet Bhumakarn, a Thai Artist The Rotunda and Garden Gallery, The Neilson Hays Library on February 1-27, 2011

Subsequent to the exhibition on paintings of elephants at the Neilson Hays Library during 2002-2006, begun from being impressed with the elephant’s conflicting character having an external image of being huge, with black rough skin, but with a cute and intelligent personality. This caused the artist to continue to draw elephants until this animal has become a symbol or his signature work.

His artwork since 2005 has therefore been increasingly added with other symbols such as birds,
trees, falling leaves, and a variety of surroundings. All of these are meant to relate the painter’s feeling at that very moment.

The exhibition to be held again in 2011 will display the symbols of the rabbit and the moon and will represent the artist’s imagination which tells of his fear of losing it as the result of increasing
burdens in making a living. When time permits to look back at himself, he wants to preserve this imagination as long as possible because the path of those who create artworks this part of the imagination is the most important.
