Art lovers are invited to explore the rich culture of Suphan Buri during "A Monk, A Child, An Art, A Philosopher, A Weevil", which is running at 1984 + 1 Gallery until Sept 1.

This is a group exhibition featuring the fascinating stories of historic Suphan Buri presented from the viewpoints of 10 Thai artists, many of whom are native to the province.

The show recounts narratives interwoven through various dimensions of time and place, subtly embedded within the fabric of culture, community, environment and human relationships.

Curated by Preecha Raksorn, also a Suphan Buri native, the exhibition brings new works created from a variety of mediums. They include Eternal Game, an interactive installation by Pachara Piyasongsoot; and Thai Porcelain by Putsadee Sriamphunpluk, who experiments with new design techniques in jewellery.

Other highlights are digital photographs by Chalit Saphaphak, who chronicles the cancer treatment of his father; and Pastels On Woven Bags by Thanawat Numcharoen, who narrates the long journey of the elephant and explores the geographical relationships across borders.

The other six participating artists are Krittaporn Mahaweerarat, Kwanchai Lichaikul, Trinnapat Chaisitthisak, Suparerk Nammontree, Akkarawin Arunmuang and Angkrit Ajchariyasophon. 1984+1 Gallery is a former rice mill with over 4,000m² of presentation space. It's located in Mueang district of Suphan Buri province, about 100km northwest of Bangkok.

The exhibition is open for public viewing daily from 10am to 5pm, except Monday. There is no admission fee.
