An artist-photographer, Kornkrit Jianpinidnun presents his recent works. Altogether three formats, but each is correlated as a journal of his journey. Two of them are showcased as photographs journals, one black and white-tabloid sized photo book-500 editions
available-with images collected while artist’s journey between 2007-2009. In addition to a journal of his journey which epitomizes his emotional contemplation, in another colour photo book-40 pages, each 7x10. Named “EMO” , the colour journal will present selected images from his fashion portfolios. The colour one is showcased and available for 5, as Ver editions. Besides his works, Kornkrit also collaborates with “Realistic Situation”, a costumes shop made by his friend.

Regularly, the artist will show variable size and diverse image printed and pinned on the wall. The works on wall is quite relatively indistinct, comparing to the rest journals. Kornkrit’s works on the wall may address both reality investigation and emotional imprint, captured by his handy medium; photography. Kornkrit inquires after an interplay between texture and surface within the flatness of photos. He addresses his inquiries to the limit of photographic medium. By installing smoothly on the wall with pins, also different kinds of paper and printing methods.

Kornkrit Jianpinidnun has been working with various medium since he was graduated from the Faculty of Fine Art, Chiang Mai University in 1999. His debut in Bangkok art scene, by exhibited “Neo Romantic” anchored his name as an emerging artist. Kornkrit applies photography as a medium to capture recurrent banality of his generation. All reflects despair and insecurity by an overridden media interfaced-society that stunned his generation, whom fed up with overflowed information. Together with the atmosphere of spontaneous connection in
information society that was largely boomed in late 1990s.

Consequently, his early works are always resonant to snapshot aesthetics and filmicovertone. As a result of his obsession, Kornkrit’s works are both fascinating and peculiar. Though, his recent exhibition may privately recalls his experience, which is concurrently reshaping his inner psychic landscape. The landscape that holds up his memory. But it can be both self nurturing and also leaving some traces of his humanly condition into his photo journal. It is the condition that shares some feeling with his colleagues such as anxiety, happiness, despair, anger and fear.
