Bangkok Art and Culture Centre presents "Picture Perfect", an exhibition which portrays how the world is seen through photographs that show the subtlety of contemporary life and alternative viewpoints of beauty and purity hidden in flaws of reality.
The meaning of the catchphrase "picture perfect" has been interpreted differently over time, however the act of picture creation has not changed much from the past.
That is, a picture speaks to the value of life, an ideal of beauty expressed and a model of perfection and supposedly correct standards.
The term represents the ideal beauty presented in a picture on the same level as the perfect beauty of a woman or timeless beauty of sunset. Is it possible that the viewpoint of beauty and perfection in frames discard the significance of hidden human flaws and subtleties?
Even though the perfect beauty shown in a picture can be connected to an ideology beyond the state of the world, such pure sights could segregate elements that remind us of the complexities of the world, of how vulnerable human beings can be, of the nature of life itself.
This exhibition is aimed at conveying the depth of photographs, passing on meaningful relationships between audience and pictures based on the complications of reality, and finally understanding stories beyond their frames.
