No more FOMO on art world, take a tour without leaving your home
Amidst the outbreak, many art spaces and shows had to postpone or worse, cancel their events to help reduce the risk of virus contagion through social gathering. In order to promote social distancing as well as the concurrent exhibitions, S.A.C. Subhashok The Arts Centre decided to launch virtual curated art tour in a brief video on their official Facebook page.
You can now head over to take a peek at the new artworks displayed in the latest exhibition, Three is a magic number 15: Hypersweet that was supposed to be on Bangkok Art Map April issue and learn about the previous exhibition featured in BAM March issue, The Sea Remembers Us.
The Sea Remembers Us by Surachai Mawornkanong or Niam Mawornkanong
In his 7th solo show, the artist aims to captivate the audience’s attention then set them free to explore their own subconsciousness through the thoughtful story of human livelihood by using the vast sea as a narrator.
Three is a magic number 15: Hypersweet by a group of young blood artists from Japan
Best known for their railleries toward Japanese pop culture in the form of sculptures, the artists picked up the concept and started combining thousands of tiny anime figures to create a larger figure sculpture. It was also considered to be at the front line of ‘Superflat’, the newest contemporary art movement in Japan utilising super vivid colours not only in delivering the messages of contemporary Japanese social state and gender but also in stating the emerging issues by criticising Japanese oversizing consumer cultures. It indicates kitsch or Japanese pop culture, and at the other end of the exhibition, has repeatedly placed specific parts of figures in resonating the visual culture and its historical notion in Japan since WWII relevant to sexual fetishism.
Take the curated virtual tour now.
