Déjà vu: The Last Chapter (Part 2)

Natee Utarit

Date:

25 May - 8 Jun 2024

Richard Koh Fine Art (RKFA) Bangkok is excited to present “Déjà vu: The Last Chapter (Part 2)”, the second installment in a three-part series featuring the captivating works of celebrated Thai artist Natee Utarit. This exhibition will be on display from 25 May to 08 June 2024 at RKFA Bangkok.

“Déjà vu: The Last Chapter” showcases Natee Utarit’s multidisciplinary approach, spanning stained glass, embroidery, sculpture, and painting. Each medium revisits pivotal moments that have influenced Western art forms, inviting viewers to rethink established narratives of cultural and historical development. The series unfolds over three sequential parts from April to June, allowing audiences to deeply engage with Utarit’s examination of cultural dialogues and historical reinterpretations.

Part 2 focuses on intricate embroidery and mixed-media installations incorporating historical artifacts. Created in 2020, these works stem from Utarit’s provocative question: “What if the Lord Buddha had traveled to Europe before the rise of Western civilization?” This hypothetical scenario inspired a series of artistic experiments, crafting narratives and objects that blend imagination with historical speculation.

The featured installations represent a significant aspect of the artist’s “Déjà vu” series. They explore the representation of Buddha not just as a scriptural figure but as an icon woven into the fabric of both Eastern and Western cultures. By fusing various collectible items through both physical and symbolic melting processes, Utarit offers a new narrative on Buddha’s teachings and their potential intersections with Western traditions.
