"Time Remapping" showcases the works of two young artists _ Thailand's Wit Pimkanchanapong and Japan's Ryusuke Kido. The exhibition was inspired by a rubber plantation the two artists visited on a 300km bicycle trip along Thailand's east coast.
Both artists shared an interest in the transformation of rubber from liquid to solid, a process capturing the tensions between nature and human development. The concept of time is critical to their pieces _ stopping, hiding, speeding or slowing time.

Koi Art Gallery presents "Mythologies Of Beauty", an exhibition by award-winning artist Thongmai Thepram.
"Mythologies Of Beauty" investigates and challenges the notions of beauty set by society, which drive men and women to look desirable and youthful using any means necessary. The artist cleverly uses the peacock as a symbol of pride and vanity _ luring viewers with his playful symbolism and stunning aesthetics.
Thongmai showcases the process behind false beauty and the inevitable doom that comes with age.
