"OPENING" brought together artworks rather than artists in spite of the international profiles of Rirkrit Tiravanija and Pier Luigi Tazzi and the exceptionally admired Mit Jai Inn and Nim Kruasaeng. The lack of titles was telling in this respect, no signposts to tell us where we are or where we can travel to. And the formal qualities of the works held them in an enigmatic unity.
This exhibition, titled "OPENING", is dedicated to Franz West, the Austrian artist who died in July this year and who was awarded the Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale in 2011. Mit was his assistant in Austria during the early years of his career and Tazzi, a well-known curator, has a long association with West.
OPENING continues at 338 Oida Gallery until Feb 28. The gallery is located on the 4th floor of Pongamorn Building,RamaIV Road, Thungmahamek (30m to the right of Lumpini MRTstation).
