About Bangkok Art Biennale

Bangkok Art Biennale is an art event organized by the Bangkok Art Biennale Foundation. Its mission is to inspire ASEAN and international audiences by raising awareness and actively nurturing contemporary art exhibitions.

In this Bangkok Art Biennale 2018, mainly in the BANGKOK ART AND CULTURE CENTRE, exhibition halls were set up in twenty locations around Bangkok, including galleries, temples, malls, and hotels, allowing visitors to appreciate a variety of works.

Duration: 19th October 2018 to 3rd February 2019.

Participatory Platforms 'Beyond Infinity'

Throughout the duration of the Bangkok Art Biennale 2018, the eighth floor of the BANGKOK ART AND CULTURE CENTRE was set up as an experimental space, making it the site of art where unexpected events can occur. There were symposiums such as performances and talks from artists including hidden messages of 'Beyond Bliss'. Performance artists were invited with the aim of it being a participatory platform for seeing, thinking, playing, acting, or relaxing alongside large-scale installations.

Main Works of 'Beyond Infinity'

  • 'The State of Suffering' (Mental Therapy) 2018

Using black wire as the main material, this work represents the inner character of a strong, yet actually very fragile artist. She created sculptures reflecting sadness, frustration, and family relations, and the transformation from sadness to happiness is expressed through the artwork.

  • 'Tape Bangkok' 2018

Developed from experiments in stage art, this piece has a structure composed of adhesive tape that extends from the ceiling to the floor.

This work, like a huge cocoon with a strong impact, allows people to enter, and crawling through a translucent tunnel, a special experience is witnessed that appeals to the five senses, thereby encouraging a sense of self-awareness and regeneration.

"Wood is a gift from nature, the only natural material we can naturally bring back,". This work is inspired by Thein Ot Phen, a wooden block joint which was made in Nakhon Pathom.
