Inson Wongsam : The Autonomous Spirit
Organized by BACC exhibition dept.
12 September - 23 November 2014
Main Gallery, 9th floor

It was more than 50 years that Inson Wongsam, an 80 years old venerable artist,
has dedicated himself and has proven his faith and steadfastness of an artist who
keeps following the path of abstract art and never returning to representational
art again.

At 28, the young Northern artist-adventurer travelled on his scooter from
Thailand heading to faraway destinations in Europe to broaden his art experiences.
Exhibitions along with meetings with artists-critics from different cultures have
driven him, a Thai sculptor who was kindled with creativity, to excel his abstract
works of art to be internationally acclaimed. Travelling back to the homeland,
the determined artist brought back nothing but 12 years of art experience. With
the spirit of a creator who explores and revisits his native land, Inson Wongsam
has mingled local culture of the Northern and Abstract art harmoniously.

Inson Wongsam: The Autonomous Spirit features over 100 works including
sculptural pieces (1974 - now), woodprints (1999 - now), and the recent
paintings (2013-now). His works usually reveal uniqueness in relation to the
depth of human mind. The exhibition also includes another significant series
of sculptures such as "Huay Fai" (1974-1977) which was created from the
hugestump of teak unfolds the yearning for the purity abides in nature that
instigates the community to concern with the loss of trees and forests;
miniatures of "Sculptures Under the Sea" (1968-1974), a series of metallic
sculptures that suggests the awareness of environmental problems and
natural crises are. Some pieces belonging to the series will be fully expressed
through a piece of Video art by Jirasak Saengpolsith, and Watchara Kanha
Thai contemporary artist; and there is also a set of reassemble sculptures
(1997-now), which assembles distinctive pieces of wood with dowel joints
that can be adjustable.

Guest curator: Tuksina Pipitkul
Invited Artists: Jirasak Saengpolsith and Wachara Kanha

Performances 12 - 14 and 18 - 21 December 2014)

exhibition and installation by Boaz Zippor (Israel), Teerawat Mulvilai (Thailand),
Tawit Keitprapai (Thailand), and Stephen Funke (Finland).

Why Butoh Fever, you may ask. There is a saying in Japanese, "If you sit on a rock
long enough it will get hot." This is the 9th festival and it is steadily getting hotter.
More and more international artists want to present their work in Thailand. Also,in
Japanese culture the word for the number 9 is similarto the sound for the word that
means "pain" or "distress". Katsura Kan has often likened Butoh as an illness that once
infected, people's lives change. In other Asian cultures, the number 9 symbolizes
completion of the three realms of existence; Mind, Body, and Spirit.
