“Out of This World” by Tawee Ratchaneekorn and Torlarp
A double exhibition of two artists from different generations, “Out of this World”, as its name suggests, is about creating art that goes beyond the ordinary. In this exhibition, Tawee Ratchaneekorn lets his imagination run wild as he creates art that helps him escape current social problems and disparate circumstances and, therefore, place his hope in future generations. On the other hand, unlike the vision of the future, Torlarp Larpjaroensook explores the past through layers of time and space by investigating our roots, a memory of self and our precedents. This exhibit embraces the science fiction genre, and it’s where the future meets the past in the present.
‘Out of this World’ is on view until July 10, 2022 at MOCA Bangkok. Find out more via the website.
