How would you describe your works?
Most of my works are photographs. The main content is space or location, for example, the exhibition of “Take Turn “ at 100 Tonson Gallery in 2009 plays out through the process of shooting, sequencing and displaying negative and positive film with the maintenance of the original record of the films. Also, the site-specific photograph presenting and reflecting the space is what I present.
What role has Buddhism played in your works?
I personally think religious does not play the direct role in my artworks, a creative aspect of art in Buddhism seems a strong inspiration for me.
What is it like to be an artist in Thailand, tell us.
Becoming artist seems to be a special one who is vague, I feel gain and lost depending which artist we are holding on his or her experience / history ( I mean those who are successful or those who are not).
Do you think Thai in general understand contemporary art?
For me, contemporary art is interesting as its character is something that people is not experienced in and not accustomed with. It is strange but exciting, but it doesn’t mean good to me. I think most people can’t evaluate and don’t know how to. Most audience view or feel interested in works, but they don’t understand as they is no instruction or helper for them to decode what the works tell them. It is for example, a simple art review or critic. This is what I think we lack of it, and this becomes a universal problem towards contemporary arts.
What can’t you live without when working?
For me, I must don’t know what and how my artworks will look like as it will encourage me to want to work more.
What are you working on at the moment?
Preparing my solo exhibition for 100 Tonson Gallery at the end of this year
The best thing about being an artist is?
Artworks that are evaluated for its creativity by various factors is different than those art which creativity is created by innovation and evaluated by tangible benefit.
What’s the best way to experience contemporary art in Thailand?
The real experience with the contemporary activity , especially on opening reception, helps us not only viewing the artworks, but meeting and chatting with those who are in contemporary art scene and this reflects the political issues in contemporary art scene.
Who or what inspires your works?
Seeing thing and perceiving thing in different angle from the regular view of others is a derive of my works. Seeing doesn’t mean viewing through my eyes, but viewing any other kinds of creative works , for example, literature, artworks by others artists, exchanging idea. Those help me seeing the accustomed things in different point of view.
