In the context of Thai contemporary art, the topic of “education” is often rendered in a critical and sarcastic tone, since this is what everyone has directly experienced, mostly with a doubtful mind. This time, education is seen through the eyes of Suthee Kunawichayanont, an artist who has long been criticizing the concept of being Thai, especially the structure and manifestation of power in language and education, which are always emphasized in his visual arts. Now his works will be co-exhibited with works by Phromtum Worawut, a recent graduate from Bangkok University. Although Phromtum is a new name in the art community, his works make distinguished appearance with frustration towards the educational system. Launching this exhibition with a senior artist like Suthee, he will present two-dimensional works which satirize the “multiple-choice” society in an unexpectedly interesting way.

Beyond images in the works of both artists is an experience imbued with elements of sarcastic black comedy in a quiet but unreliable atmosphere. It brings us back to the time when we were students sitting in a classroom, a familiar circumstance which had consumed a part of our lives since earliest childhood.

The exhibition will be held on November 27 – December 18, 2010.

The inauguration ceremony will be on November 27, 2010, at 6 pm - 8 pm.llery, Silom Galleria
