Sundaram Tagore Gallery and curator Loredana Pazzini-Paracciani present work by six influential Thai artists examining divergent notions of present-day Thailand, a country experiencing social and political uncertainties under military rule since 2014. Through painting, sculpture, collage and works on paper, each of the artists explores themes of duality and alternative possibilities from both personal and collective narratives.
As a result of the current social and political shifts rippling across the globe, we are confronted daily by a ceaseless flow of news and information that demands not only our attention, but a consensus of opinion formed from a deluge of contradictory positions. Reflecting on this notion of alternative choices, these artists have created works examining the tension that arises from opposing views within their own society and beyond, while also examining the alternative possibilities—the proverbial “other side of the coin.”
