"Games Of Desire" is a solo exhibition of the latest artworks by rising Thai artist Kowit Wattanarach. In this exhibition, the artist exposes the lure brought forth by beauty and desire, diving beyond the surface of charming illusion. Kowit captures the essence of temptation through oil paintings, emphasising beauty and gaze with subliminal symbols fused into the works. In viewing the series at first instance, the viewers are drawn to the bold sexual connotations present. The purposeful parting of the lips, an innocent gaze and sexual appeal are meticulously painted to produce a series of breathtaking works.

H Project Space presents an international collaboration, planned site-specifically. Mairin Grant is based in Ireland and Kenji Nagai in Japan. Both artists exchange and respond to each other's art as an ongoing project of mutual influence that began four years ago.
The collaboration started when Mairin first met Kenji in Europe and later visited Japan where she became influenced by Shinto culture, the spiritual practice of linking the present with the past that reflects ideas about the elements and seasons of nature.
