Miti Ruangkritya ROOM NO.2 AND SUNSET ON UNNAMED LANES at Art Basel Hong Kong (Discoveries sector) (Booth 1C40) on May 19-23, 2021
BANGKOK CITYCITY GALLERY is pleased to present Room no.2 and Sunset on Unnamed Lanes by Bangkok-based artist Miti Ruangkritya at Discoveries sector (1C40), Art Basel in Hong Kong from May 19–23, 2021. This will be the first presentation in Hong Kong for the artist and the gallery.
Room no.2 and Sunset on Unnamed Lanes introduces Ruangkritya’s new project about a large working-class community in the Khlong Toei district in Bangkok as an expansion to his ongoing series Dream Property (since 2014) and Sunset (since 2018). Proceeding with his research-oriented process, characterized by an extensive and in-depth engagement with the site and the issues it faces, these two bodies of work continue his examination of the “nature of property development and its relationship to the city”.
