In this current age of multi-disciplinary creatives, the licence to execute a visual arts project is no longer confined to those people with direct artistic backgrounds. More and more works and exhibitions are coming from talents with diverse artistic origins and training.
Senior architect Sumet Jumsai Na Ayudhya and the world-class filmmaker/visual artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul are dominant examples. Both constantly execute visual, graphic and installation pieces widely recognised as fine-art creations. Local art buffs can now enjoy similar creativity from another name, Jakrawal Nilthamrong.
For the exhibition "In Transit", the cinematography lecturer at Thammasat University recruited four students to join the group exhibition. On show now at The Art Center, Chulalongkorn University, the wellspring of Jakrawal's show comes from neither his strong education background - at two fine-arts schools - nor this growing portfolio, but from collaboration with his junior friends and Mary Pansanga, the programme's curator.
All five in the show adhere to a single thesis: The transition of and within the cinematic sphere. They investigate dimensions of the artifice and aesthetics of cinematography by two means: Looking back at the vanishing components, and discussing the current and future elements of the popular art form.
