H Project Space presents ''A Room At The End Of The World'', an installation by Amornthep Jaidee, an emergent artist based in Thailand and Canada.
Probing discomforting but revelatory ideas about sexuality, desire and identity, the artist has re-created H Project Space as a surreal bedroom where the weird juxtaposition of found objects antagonises the serenity and grandeur of this colonial-style room.
New generations of artists continue to provide fresh voices for the critical theories of gender and sexuality that have emerged under the rubric of postmodernism and with queer theory.
Themes of a fragmented self, the politics of normative values, and the subversive potential of ambivalent knowledge receive renewed interest for ever-expanding contemporary contexts.
This exhibition confronts us with a recognition of the fraught terms by which we often understand private, personal experiences and our sense of self therein - between seduction and repellence, desire and risk, and other confusions.
A Room At The End Of The World will be on show atHProject Space from July 11 to Aug 18. The gallery is on Sathon Soi 12 and opens Wednesday to Monday from 10am to 6pm. Call 085-021-5508 or visit www.hgallerybkk.com.
