About the PROXIMITY exhibition at the National Museum in Szczecin, Poland

Translation:

Kawita Vatanajyankur wears the frozen ice on her head.

The National Museum is presenting the Thai contemporary art exhibition as part of the inSPIRACJE festival.

"These are well-known Thai artists who have achieved international renown", Aime Pichaya Suphanavanij, the curator of the Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre said. "They will say more about us than the existing superficial image of our country", Suphanavanij added.

Pan Pan Nakprasert combines the video of the mushrooms with the sound of the pornographic film in the background. As human beings cling to only 2 types of gender, mushrooms have 36,000 sexes that are comparable for mating. Such great amounts show cleverness in law of nature that is designed to guarantee the greater genetic disparities of fungus while human have less. "The work questions gender and sexuality" said the curator. "The artist uses the symbol of the fungus to undermine the normative identity" "The artist expresses himself as a third gender", she added.

Kawita Vatanajyankur, the heroine within her videos wears ice on her head, drinks a monstrous amount of water from the funnel ("Fill"), soaks her head in a bucket ("submerged") to exceed the limits of her own body. Her experiments with everyday objects refer to the seventeenth century painting, which represents women in the home. The series of video works are "full of quiet violence."

Tul Suwannakit brought an installation in which a wild pig is placed in bed. "Adjusting and comparing the animals to human identity becomes a metaphor for the experience of life", Suphanavanij added.

Opening of the exhibition "Proximity" is on this Saturday at the National Museum.
