Official description

After a look at Bangkok’s familiar landscape through the photography of French photographer Jean-Sebastien Faure in the exhibition “Lonely Bangkok”, a new show at Kathmandu Photo Gallery explores the space’s own namesake, Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Entitled “Danse Macabre”, photographer Sirima “Pahparn” Chaipreechawit presents a series of photographs taken in the city after the catastrophic earthquake.

“There are no earthquake scars,” reads the exhibition statement. “But the people in Sirima Chaipreechawit’s singular vision of Kathmandu seem trapped, lost in an ancient maze, chasing their own shadows in a danse macabre.”

Sirima Chaipreechawit graduated from Bangkok University Film School but soon turned her focus to still photography, and has exhibited regularly since 2011. Best known for her work in black and white, with a classical sense of beauty and composition, her other notable role is as the director of the Jam Factory Gallery.

In “Danse Macabre”, the series of photographs verge between travel photography and photojournalism, and Sirima attempts to present the reality of the city, not through academic study of Nepali socio-political conflicts, but what she calls an “instinctive process of psychic osmosis”.

‘Danse Macabre’ opens on Mar 5, with an opening party at 6.30pm, and will run until Apr 30 at Kathmandu Photo Gallery, Pan Road (near the Indian Temple), Silom. Call 02-234-6700.
