“Beauty in Bygone Times” discusses the current context of Thai heritage amidst a rapid shift in political and social ideology favored by the new generation. Thai society is polarized into two major ideas of Conservative and Liberal. The highly sophisticated and graceful tradition that defines Thai culture and people’s identity is being viewed as old fashioned or dubbed as the “dinosaur” era.
This series of work does not criticize nor support any particular idea. It plays the role of art that documents the situation in the artist’s contemporary time. The exhibition suggests equality and the value of humanity; at the same time pointing out the wave of digital technology that changes the landscape of art creation like never before.
