A/PART

A 3 x 8 x2.5 m steel mesh enclosed rectangular structure located in a regulated area is allocated as a simulation zone to develop new models through purposeful zoning, all the while also acting as a central

space for connection. The audience is free to enter the structure and explore the boundaries of personal spaces within the keeping of another’s.

พื้นที่สี่เหลี่ยมปิดล้อมขนาด 3 x 8 เมตร ที่ตั้งอยู่ในพื้นที่ที่ถูกควมคุมดูแล ถูกจัดสรรให้เป็นพื้นที่จำลองที่ถูกแยกออกมา เป็นส่วนที่ถูกเชื่อมต่อระหว่างกลาง  ผู้ชมสามารถสนุกสนานและท่องเที่ยวไปในพื้นที่ส่วนตัวของคนอื่นได้ด้วยความอิสระเสรีที่ถูกคุมขัง  เฉกเช่นการถูกจองจำในพื้นที่ส่วนตัวของคนอื่น

Yawnghwe Office in Exile

Global capitalism is corruption legalized. The lines that separate legal and illegal transactions are becoming increasingly blurred. This is not a legal question, but rather, a political question-- and 

ultimately, a question of power.

A2. Documentary screening " The Disappearance of Roi Ja“

Prasert Yodkaew #PJ31

Ideal space offers beauty to most viewers. Preconceived images are often far from the rationality in the reality before us. #PJ31 strives to find a balance from an imagination run wild and the truth that stares back at us. 

 

Torwong Wutthiwong Stately Remnants

Every square meter of debris represents a former square meter of value. Erosion creates remnants of what could have been while at the same time creating new and unexpected possibilities.

Phornphop Sittirak Suspicious Thing สิ่งที่ต้อง (น่า)สงสัย

Words on a page do not often tell the whole story. The message in Suspicious Things covers events from an uncredible history. The truth becomes less believable with power as readability is challenged through the forced distance from the viewer, thus creating an inferior history. 

D3.  Death of Mackerel 2018

The image of a mackerel records a 20 year history of the normalization of poverty. Harkening back to the beginning of the mackerels use as a tool in extreme rhetoric the meaning in 2018 remains the same as does the poverty it sought to normalize.
