November 15, 2019 - January 22, 2020Free
In the second edition of Crossing SEA, DECK presents a group exhibition on Thai contemporary photography from 15 Nov 2019 to 22 Jan 2020. Curated by Ark Fongsmut, the exhibition features the works of Thai photographers Miti Ruangkritya, Piyatat Hemmatat, Surat Setsaeng, and Nat Bowornphatnon.
‘GAP: A Distinct to Reality’ questions to what extend could reality be presented by photographic images, and how the distance between the invisible and reality became a space of deliberation on the immediate circumstances and conditions of contemporary life in Thailand, with topics ranging from pollution, Bangkok’s infamous traffic jam, and the Narcotic Act in Thailand.
Crossing SEA is a research-based exhibition series initiated by DECK which examines the development of photographic practices in Southeast Asia.
