Event Date : 14 July - 18 September 2011
Location : Gallery, 9th Floor
This exhibition was derived from the case study on modern Thai abstract sculptural art by Asst. Prof. Tuksina Pipitkul who has studied works and thoughts of four renowned artists on exhibit, consisting of Chamruang Vichienket, Nontiwat Chantanapalin, Inson Wongsam, and Khemarat Kongsook. The exhibition is a presentation of different creative processes involved, from origin of ideas, study, and discovery of attributes found in abstraction that results in elimination of unnecessary, to interpret emotions into physical forms. The communication in form of abstraction by the artists is thus channeled into a sculptural form that is contemporary reflecting views and backgrounds of each individual.
The objective of this exhibition is to show that creation of abstract art is not something out of reach for audience, but actually something very close to his or her life experiences. Through artists’ works, the exhibition is curated with stance of Thai sculptural art that is rooted to individual views and culture. It is a path of evolution, a link, and an exchange of methods and perceptions in Thai abstract art. The exhibition highlights the beginning era of abstract art that influences contemporary art in Thailand today.
