Kneaded Water

The four featured artists, Harit Srikhao, Kamonlak Sukchai, Naraphat Sakarthornsap, and Natthaya Thaidecha, were born and raised on the outskirts of Bangkok in the early to mid-1990s and witnessed as adolescents the outbreaks of Thailand’s recurring political turmoil in the years since 2000. From this common context, their work is imbued with a shared ambience. Through their aggressive and continuous interventions in their images, all of the artists attempt to reflect on the effects of long-concealed norms and power on the unconscious of ordinary people, and how these structural forces provoke actions, beliefs, and bodily conditions at the level of the state, society, and the individual. Their meticulous observation of reality sometimes manifests at the boundary between the real and unreal, thereby reappearing before our eyes as reality in reinforced form.
