Opalnest and XXX Gallery presents

CHAPTER 3, STATE OF BEING
NEW VIDEOART FROM THAILAND

Curated by Korakrit Arunanondchai

Opalnest and XXX Gallery is proud to present “Chapter 3 / State of Being” a one-night screening exhibition featuring a young generation of visual artists from Bangkok and other parts of Thailand, working within the realms of moving image, installation art, film and photography. Chapter 3 / State of Being includes works by 9 artists – Chai Siris, Chulayarnnon Siriphol, Nontawat Numbenchapol, Sareena Sattapon and Athit Siritavang, Taiki Sakpisit, Taweewit Kijtanasoonthorn, Tulapop Saenjaroen, Wantanee Siripattananuntakul – whose work reflects the current state of social upheavals in Thailand, offering audiences a personal perspective on recent history.

“There is a certain democraticness that the medium of video art can offer through its form. Thailand in 2014 faces a time of uncertainty. In this period of waiting, reflecting and perhaps acting, whether in words, narrative or in forms of abstraction, the artists selected in this show reflect a certain realism towards the current state of being in Thailand. This selection is not about fantasy. It is a reflection on the reality at hand in all types of ways and their complexities.”
– Korakrit Arunanondchai, Curator
