029: Yes, I am not : Exhibition by Santi Lawrachawee

Yes, I am not Exhibition

July 5-31, 2008,
at Bangkok University Gallery, City Campus

Due to Santi Lawrachawee’s experiences and roles in the graphic
design realm, not only as a designer of the Practical Studio, or as
a part-time lecturer in the School of Fine and Applied Arts,
Bangkok University and Chulalongkorn University, but also as
a major player who has been continuously engaged in the
movements for Thailand’s field of arts and design,
it is time that he makes use of these art and design experiences
to convey his personal viewpoints in the first of his solo exhibition
“Yes, I am not.” This exhibition aims to present the puzzling circle
of globalized people’s consumption of information in their daily
lives, starting from the consumption process, embellishment,
synthesis, acceptance/opposition, and truth seeking. It seems like
asking the question, “What do we ultimately acquire from living in
the ocean of information that crazily strikes at us?”
This is conveyed by cutting newspapers to form more than
1000 lumps of paper bolds in a letter shape, which are exhibited
as a paper installation.


I find his work very conceptual but something inspires me and my project, in terms of how people see things and perceive them everyday. And it’s interesting to see this kind of work from Thai designer.
