RMA Institute Gallery presents "Atypical Love", a photography project by Cattleya Jaruthavee. This collection of photos brings to light myriad memories. They confront the perpetrator's delusion that abuse was the way to show love, revealing an ability to create and mould their personal insecurities in others. By re-creating a cluster of memories, it forces the harmed to confront the stigma and secrecy endured. It is hoped that by visually documenting the memories of a fellow member of society, this will inspire the fortunate ones to be aware of abuse and the less fortunate to speak out.

Steven Simon's series of works titled "Spiral" is based on research into the geometry in nature, such as structure, volume and space. The very act of planting seeds, watching them grow into plants and observing how they develop informs how Simon sees and thinks about shapes, textures and spiralling structures.
His materials and method of mould-making capture the textured surfaces of flowers and vegetables that evoke spiral forms reminiscent of DNA spirals and galaxies.

Galerie N presents "In Change" by Boonchuay Kerdree. In this exhibition, he employs mixed-media painting to portray his experiences and highlight how change occurs in life. The artist uses symbols to express internal quietness. Sometimes it is an unknown sentiment that arises from unexpected circumstances, one that lingers in the subconscious and defies explanation.
Today's world is full of conflicting and bewildering changes _ humankind is undergoing a metamorphosis, as is Mother Nature, and a balance is being sought. The exhibition reflects the reality of change in every breath, in every moment.
