Living Room (visual and sound installation) by Thanavi Chotpradit



100 Tonson Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition “Living Room” (visual and sound installation)  by Jiradej and Prinda Setabundhu, Anothai Nitibhon,  Kata Sangkae, curated by Thanavi Chotpradit.  This is the exhibition that showcasing what Thanavi has earned from her Master Degree in Art History at Leiden University, the Netherland.    As part of the grants by 100 Tonson Gallery, this is the contribution by the curator.


How could one make the space perceivable? Even the space exists when having the edge identified (by the wall, for instance), it is not precisely to make us sense the space itself. Beyond knowing the size of the space we are being in, how can we “feel” it? How can we conceive the existence of the intangible?

These questions around the existence of the space are the questions of representation and perception. It is all about the “in-between” absence and presence. If art makes the invisible visible and music makes the non-audible audible, the colorless-mute space, the air, may come into being by the help of these medium. Inspired by Alvin Lucier’s ‘I’m sitting in a room,’ Jiradej and Prinda Setabundhu (composer, visual artist), Anothai Nitibhon (composer), and Kata Sangkae (visual artist) work together in ‘Living Room,’ the collaborative project that aims to make existence of space perceivable. As a site specific, visual and sound installation, 100 Tonson Gallery will be transformed into the
“Living Room,” the room that has a live, a heart beating and a breath taking.

Jiradej and Anothai will compose a new sound while Prinda and Kata will do sculpture and installation.

The opening reception will be on Thursday January 21, 2010
The exhibition will be on view from January 21 – February 28, 2010
