Official description

With the support of Museum Siam and the Queen’s Gallery, a team of students have put together an exhibition “Khun Kao” (The Favour Of Rice), which is part of the 5th Young Muse Project and runs until July 27 at the Queen’s Gallery. The exhibition features sets of sculptures that aim to touch on the five human senses in order to send a message about the value of rice, as well as promote a new experience of museum visiting.

The team who came up with “Khun Kao” — Oranut Singtha, Suphawan Khunta, Jiraphat Pimnoi, Piyanuth Teerawutisarth and Punnathat Suphatthanakul — are third year students from the Faculty of Industrial Technology at Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University. They realise that many city people take rice for granted and art can be used to counter that complacency.

“Khun Kao” has a simple set-up and consists of five zones that demonstrate the value of rice and the stories of farmers. All areas are faintly scented by rice grains and hay, each area stimulating different senses. “Value of Disparity”, for instance, is all about touching, as the exhibition lets us reflect on the different perceptions of rice by the rich and the poor.

“Value of Meaning” contains a small straw hut as part of the exhibition, installed with a loudspeaker from which poems read by farmers are broadcast. This exhibition allows visitors to see, touch and smell the grains to understand the process from which rice arrives to our dining table.
