Sound of silence in Thailand: drawings by Supachai Areerungruang
Containing an installation of over 120 pieces of ink on paper drawing and painting (of variable dimensions), Ajarn Supachai offers his artwork as images of honest communication on social and political, even cultural issues. His art practice embodies creative expressions in diverse ways, especially of feelings that cannot be voiced. At stake is the ongoing migration and miscibility within Southeast Asian communities across geographical boundaries for economic and other reasons. This exhibition demonstrates the contemporary context of the artist’s life, his thoughts and interpretations and their vital role to present ideas and messages to society at large.
