Revisited < > Departed by Navin Rawanchaikul, a well-recognized artist, who marks his long overdue return to the Thai capital. Curated by Worathep Akkabootara, the exhibition is weaving the artist’s intimate stories with two of the artist’s most influential figures in his life—his father and his late teacher, the renowned Thai artist Montien Boonma. This intergenerational exhibition is showing the comprehensive archival display employs intimate biographic narratives and associated personal artifacts to relate newly created works with seminal pieces from the artist’s extensive oeuvre. Revisited < > Departed is about excavating life’s chronicles to make sense of existence from those who shape, but ultimately depart from it. This reflective practice is indeed a recurring sequence of which one revisits and departs throughout one’s life. Penned for great admiration and honeycombed with private memories, Rawanchaikul has written three letters to Boonma in 2010, 2013 and 2018 which serve as a focal point to the exhibition. The artistic merit of letters is not a sole object but an entire performance that involves (re)writing and (re)reading to revision about what has departed.
