Until May 20
This exhibition of contemporary artworks by Thanutcha Leelangkura, an artist from Silpakorn University, presents stories of Buddhism and science, arguing that Buddhism stays beyond the time, and that humans are lost in desires and science that will never lead to the core of the Buddhism. The word Ayatana is a Buddhist term that has been translated as “sense base”, “sense-media”, or “sense sphere”, while the number 6 refers to the six senses—a mix of abstract and factual. The artworks attempt to embrace the infinite passionate nature of humanity. The philosophical scope of the show is metaphysical in nature, and the artworks try to convey the idea that humans will always have more and more desire. The smart technologies that have been created by humans reflect the desire of people to satisfy their six senses. The artist shows the viewer that the growth of science creates an unstoppable desire that will finally lead to the disgrace of mankind, and thus humans will never understand the core of Buddhism, which is timeless. As an artistic exercise the artist has created this exhibition, which express her thoughts on these spiritual issues.
