Exhibition places trauma of current events in the spotlight
Bangkok Citycity Gallery presents its first online viewing room presentation titled "Trauma And Care", featuring artworks by nine Thai artists until Oct 31.
Reflecting on the current global circumstances and urgencies, the online showcase brings a selection of new works created within the past two years that reaffirm their relationship to the zeitgeist of the period.
The artworks are influenced by the trauma people have been experiencing as protests triggered by the lagging Covid-19 response continue to occupy the streets and remain a mainstay in media reporting.
The range of materials and imageries in these artworks reflect the urban atmosphere, giving further emphasis to the relationships existing between them, the city, and its inhabitants.
The works are displayed in close proximity to each other, catalysing dialogues between different artistic practices while addressing the fundamental human need to process injury and healing.
They include ceramic figures by Dusadee Huntrakul; oil on canvas by Dhanut Tungsuwan; a bleached denim and inkjet print on canvas by Korakrit Arunanondchai; and a digital print on fabric and a video file by Nawin Nuthong. The other works are giclee prints on archival paper by Chulayarnnon Siriphol; a giclee print on signbond by Miti Ruangkritya; oil on linen paintings by Tae Parvit; digital prints on fabric by Tanat Teeradakorn; and a neon light installation by Orawan Arunrak.
