Exhibition: Possession
Curated by Brian Curtin and Steve Dutton
14 March - 5 May 2013
Main Gallery, 8th floor

A sense of immersion in visual culture generally, the use of new and old technologies, a revisiting of earlier critical issues around authorship, originality and context, the un-even significance of signs within a global context, and an embracing of the evacuation of the image characterizes all the artworks in Possession. These issues can challenge the very possibility of a singular or distinct context for understanding the artwork and the presence of the artist all but dissipates; yet much of the artwork within this exhibition subtly undermines this assumption. Possession points to the paradox of a claim for specificities and subjectivities in much contemporary art practice whilst acknowledging the greater forces and agencies which affect it; or, who is in the process of possessing who? And how do we decide?

People's Gallery P2 - P3, 2nd floor artHub@bacc

With this hand, it was used to hold from pens, pencils, needles to computer mouse. But one day it turned to hold paint brushes. With resourceful experiences in life, brushes and paints are used to depict emotions, thoughts and stories, through pictures of girls and cats, expressing the positive and bright sides of life. I have dreams. I have tried and done many things. BUT, NOW, The only thing that I love to do is just painting, because I'm A Painter.

35th Anniversary: The South East Asian Writers Awards Exhibition
21 April – 19 May 2013
1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th floor

These “photo-poems” are a variation of ekphrasis (poetry with works of art as their subject). They are short verses presented with photographic portraits of 27 Thai artists taken with a piece of their art, and thus are an attempt to unite the two art forms of visual art and writing. Each rhythmic verse is a response, created quickly, but which flows freely in any direction and is capable of being interpreted by the viewer in many different ways. The words intend to evoke the same visceral response in the viewer as a visual artwork, applying techniques such as narration, description, evocation, juxtaposition, etc, in their response to the individual artists portrayed and their visual works. The title Three Worlds was selected as it references The Three Worlds—or Traiphum [Thai: ไตรภูมิพระร่วง]—the earliest known Thai language illustrated manuscript created ca. 1345. In this exhibition, however, Three Worlds—translated into Thai language literally [Thai: สามโลก]—describes the project’s tripartite combination of photography, poetry and art.
