In the November issue (no 176) of Thailand’s art magazine art4d, I share some of the latest project ideas with Brian Curtin, curator of the recent “Surface Depth” exhibition at the H Gallery in Bangkok.
On Thursday September 9th 2010, Andrew J West of the Bangkok Post reviewed Surface Depth. Read the online version here.
SURFACE DEPTH Curated by Brian Curtin
H Gallery, Bangkok September 2-30, 2010
Dutton and Swindells
H Gallery is very pleased to announce an international exhibition of artists who highlight the physical form of representation. Including a diverse array of media and methods – sound, text, photography, installation and painting – Surface Depth explores how form guides significance, concealing as well as revealing and shifting and altering the familiar or expected in ever-new and provocative directions. All the artists address the broad contexts of representation in terms of the popular and the elite and the political and the personal. In a local context where representation remains a volatile means of expression, Surface Depth promises a nuanced and critical view of how it is intended that we understand, and therefore reflect on, the world we live in. The diversity of the artists is a key to the impact of Surface Depth and includes recent Bangkok émigré Simon Larbalestier, famed for his photographs for music albums, and Arin Rungjang, whose work with space and representation has been selected for inclusion in the 3rd Singapore Biennale 2011. As well as Thailand, the artists hail from New York, Britain and Italy.
