Creative dialogue

A new British-Thai exhibition is full of contrasting juxtapositions, but the works clearly speak for themselves

It’s either very enticing or discouraging to viewers when curator Andrew Stahl says that his new exhibition “illustrates nothing” and that “we expect an electric conversation with excitement and perhaps even failure”. The show is called “Monologue Dialogue 3: Fragility And Monumentality”, currently on display on the ninth floor of Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, and the works from various artists shown together are just as overwhelming as the exhibition’s title itself.

The show is the third instalment and it’s a continuation of “a conversation” by means of exhibition between a group of British and Thai artists in both Bangkok and London, which was initiated eight years ago with support from the British Council. The first show was in 2006 at Bangkok University Gallery, the result of a six-week residency of a group of British — including Andrew Stahl — and Thai artists. The second show was when Stahl returned to England and decided to arrange a “return exhibition” at the Bischoff/Weiss gallery in London.
