As a part of The "Condition Report", a collaborative art project with curators from Japan
and Southeast Asian Countries with the objectives to incubate young curators through
working in collaboration with senior curators panning projects across the region. The last exhibition by senior curators is in Bangkok under the title of "Mode of Liaisons", a concept
that is rooted from biological standpoint employing the works of art from the senior
curators’ previous selections in other cities, stemming out with the new artworks selected
to reach the conceptual whole. Mode of Liaisons aims to look at the meaning which is not
only embedded in the artworks, but also the ecosystem in which the artworks are vitalized.
This concept views a work of art as a living organism with appendages that move and
adapt the meaning of its existence. Moreover, it aims to explore the essence hidden in
the point of interaction between networks of each different works which can be led to
the exploration of further meaningful relationships.
