Painting with history in a room filled with people with funny names 3
03.04 - 05.06.2016
It’s been 4 years since I started project. Three main videos that make up a trilogy, and the epilogue, being shown here at Bangkok CityCity Gallery. Each of the videos records a certain amount of thoughts, events emotions within those specific times. The work, in a way, is an engine for memory keeping and memory making. The form and materiality of this engine feels a lot like a membrane. I gave it a name and it’s Chantri.
The denim painter started somewhere in the summer of 2011, here in Bangkok, when I came home to spend time with my grandfather who started to loose his ability to keep short term memory. Now in 2016, the project has some what finished and return home to it’s starting point.
I am so happy and excited to present to you finally, ‘Painting with history in a room filled with people with funny names 3’
