100 Tonson Foundation is pleased to present ALL IS PRETTIER. Udomsak Krisanamis’ first solo exhibition at the Foundation.
Whilst preparing for the exhibition, Udomsak Krisanamis was reminded of a quote by Andy Warhol, ‘All is pretty’ and was drawn to its simple truth. ‘All is pretty’ means that everything, as ordinary or unloved as it may be, has inherent beauty. For over three decades, Krisanamis has taken the most ordinary, unloved objects and surfaces and made them “prettier”. That all things have the capacity to be pretty suggests there is nothing that cannot become an artist’s canvas: there is nothing so ordinary that it cannot be art.
Over six months, and in three parts, Krisanamis will transform 100 Tonson Foundation into a factory inspired by Warhol’s own such space: a place for imagination, experimentation, and boundless creation for both the artist and his community. Krisanamis’ rendition of the Factory will pay homage to Warhol’s: a living space that morphs into various incarnations throughout its three-phase evolutionary existence. The room will become the artist’s studio, where the public is invited to observe, listen, or read, and ultimately serve as a factory for making memories. After all, everything is prettier when it has the care and attention of a community.
