Ralph Kiggell continues a series of works that reinterpret common decorative elements from Thailand and Britain. Through various media, he reshapes and re-colours objects of cultural and national identity, such as pinnacles, mandalas, flags, and stupas, using them to assess the presentation of Thailand as “other” to foreign eyes and to examine the historic assimilation of foreign “things” into Thailand. His works also offer commentary on the changing notions of what is craft and what is art in the Digital Age.
