The Thai artist is one of Southeast Asia’s leading contemporary artists working primarily in the textile medium, and his latest exhibition is a presentation of a series of five tapestried installations, each assembled by stitching uniforms gathered from workers in the service industry in Thailand. Uniforms have consistently played a significant role in the artist’s creative practice, conveying unspoken political and social issues; the show is an exploration of the impact of the pandemic on Thailand’s service industry, which heavily relies on tourism.
The exhibition is staged in conjunction with Siributr’s survey exhibition at CHAT (Centre for Heritage, Arts, and Textile).
This thought-provoking showcase invites viewers to contemplate the intricate stories woven through sewing and embroidery, shedding light on religious and social conflicts in Southeast Asia. Experience the beauty, depth, and storytelling process that makes this exhibition a must-see for art enthusiasts seeking a deeper understanding of the human experience.
