Official description

Two artists from Japan and Thailand juxtapose money origami and video installations to take viewers into an imaginary world during the “Moneylicious” exhibition which kicks off at Tadu Taiyarnyon Contemporary Art this Saturday and runs until Aug 31.

Japanese artist Yosuke Hasegawa displays the traditional method of banknote origami blended with his own creative and modern methods. The artist assembled new shapes resulting from banknote folding and put them in a collage.

Yosuke plays with the symbols and portraits on international banknotes.

Some works also lead viewers’ imagination to the countries of those banknotes.
