In Timeless Path past, present and future co-exist. The centrepiece of the exhibition is Voyager (2022). Launched in 1977, the year Larpjaroensook was born, Voyager I is now the most distant man-made object. As of December 2022, it is 14.8 billion miles (23.8 billion kilometres) away from Earth. Displayed with this work is a screen showing real-time information on Voyager I from NASA on a wooden frame that was once part of the artist’s old family boat. Every signal received from the spacecraft is from the past, its present is our future.
“Timeless Path demonstrates the artist’s attempt to connect to something beyond our world, into the deep space beyond our common logic and perception,” says MOCA BANGKOK Managing Director and exhibition co-curator Kanachai Bencharongkul. “This exhibition is an extension of Larpjaroensook’s previous dual show, Out of this World with Tawee Ratchaneekorn, at MOCA BANGKOK. While that exhibition presented an outlook and a comparison of two artists and practices, this one includes additional work and uncovers how Larpjaroensook is trying to deconstruct the timeline within the context of his artwork, to reflect on his thought, life and society.”
