Week of Confusion

Mona Lisa's Smile We're sorry that we haven't updated our blog for a week. We are still staying at the gallery and mocking up more art masterpieces. Last week, we lost 3 of 5 crews including me (Atikom, the blogger) due to our own business about academic assignments in Chiang Mai. This biz made me feel uncertain about Arts. In my perspective, the boundary of art is expandable unlimitedly as long as it is processed to lead people to spaces in the land of ideas and imaginations by any means. There's no refusal but can be dicussed. As Jean Baudrillard said, "No matter how marginal, or banal, or even obscene it may be, everything is subject to aestheticization, culturalization, museumification", but after this assignment presentation, I feel like I crashed into the hardest wall that imprisoned me inside the art territory, I cannot go exploring the land of unknown outside. Even art has its own limitation.

I don't want to bother you with my complaints, just leave it there. It will pass us by, eventually. However, 2 of our guys, Taviphut and Nara was left here to continue the project. But while Thanaphong, Pratomphong and me go to Chiang Mai, Taviphat had a cold! Bangkok air pollution hurts him. So, Nara, the only one fine crew had to work alone.

Taviphut died and Nara worked alone 5 days later, everything is better, Pratompong and me came back to Ver Gallery but Thanaphong had to work on his assignments in Chiang Mai until the end of this month. Luckily, we got a newcomer, Patipat Boonmungmee. During 5 days of confusion, we got some participants who work better than us, ha ha. Shortly afterwards, Taviphut recovered from his cold, and these are the list of our new works;
