Date : 19 March - 31 March 2019 Location: 4th floor
By SEA Junctionin collaboration withTifa Foundation
SEA Junction in collaboration with TIFA Foundation will hold the exhibition “Inside Out; Bodymaps of Bangkok Refugees” on the curve wall of the 4th floor of the Bangkok Art and Culture Center (BACC) exposing paintings done by urban refugees living in Bangkok. The so-called “bodymap” paintings are self-representations of each painter. They were made starting with the drawing of a real-life outline of the artist’s body. Then memories, and hopes were painted onto the paper and the bodymap have become a life-sized documentation of the refugees in between past and future. To conclude and celebrate the exhibition on 30 March at 5 PM a panel discussion will be held that focuses attention on mental health among refugees in Thailand (both urban and camp refugees) – an important, yet often neglected topic. The panel will discuss issues as well as approaches, especially creative approaches, that are used to strengthen the resilience of refugees and other marginalized groups in coping with trauma and insecurity.
