Procession of Dystopia

Kanatorn Khaosanit, Wattanapume Laisuwanchai, and Khetsin Chuchan

Date:

2 - 14 Jul 2024

The exhibition originates from Kanatorn Khaosanit’s literary work titled “Let Them See Us, Let Them Fear Us, Our Love is a Rebellion They Cannot Crush.” Kanatorn wrote this piece of short story as a social reflection, which became a foundation for 2 other artists to interpret and create new bodies of work. Wattanapume Laisuwanchai created a visual performance titled “The Body Craves Impact as Love Bursts,” while Khetsin Chuchan formed a sound installation comprised of music composition and field recordings in the work called “Garden of Insignificant Things.”

The collaboration was stimulated by contemporary issues and situations that have surrounded the artists for most of their lives, from when they are awake to the moment they close their eyes (but don’t dare to dream). The main subject undergoes different interpretations by the artists. Their ideas intertwine and branch out like trees, while also rooting deeply into each other’s thought processes, uncovering new methods to create their works. The result is an exhibition that cunningly conveys the essence of their concept while also allowing space for audience interpretation.

The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre invites you to explore the implications of social phenomena hidden within the exhibition and investigate the dystopia created by the three artists. This simulated space, consisting of visuals, sounds, and ambiance, reflects traces of a world that grips us together.
