A room full of mystery

Canadian-based Thai artist Amornthep Jaidee on his debut exhibition in his home country

- +

When you walk into a room inside the white colonial house, a bed dominates the empty space. Instead of a mattress, you see a bunch of cacti in different shapes and sizes. Amidst the green thorny plants are four hand sculptures placing in different spots on the bed; they seem to be giving a sign to the living things trapped in one place. 

This is an installation by Amornthep Jaidee, a young Thai artist who is now based in Canada. While completing his master's degree in fine art, the native of Chiang Mai has returned to Thailand for his debut exhibition at H Gallery.

For the past few years, Amornthep has focused on working with found objects and installation pieces that explore the diversity of queer culture.
