(No sunrise, No sunset by Kamin Lertchaiprasert and Suriya Umpansiriratana)

Let's take a look at the first example of a Thai artist named Kamin Lertchaiprasert and Suriya Umpansiriratana.
He did not look at this piece of art as a specific area only. But it is a lifelong art.
He combined the space with the spiritual dimension of life in general with the inspiration of Krabi.

Kamin works with Sura (a famous architect) to create a cave with statue of a grandmother “Sa” (name of grandmother) .
An elderly woman waiting for her husband to go back home for a long time. “Sa” (grandmother) is a symbol of love and waiting.
This is a feature that exists in the cave man. Although this cave is located in a hidden cliff location.
However, tourists and locals can escape the chaos of this tourist city to see the “Sa” grandmother waiting.

This work is exhibited at the Scenic View of Krabi Resort. It is one of the beautiful sunset at Ao Nang beach.

Rumors from the Sea

(Rumors from the Sea by Félix BLUME)

It is a sound placement area from Félix BLUME, a French artist. Inspired by the bamboo barrier wave.
Many communities in Thailand has a simple process of coastal protection which eroded. This arrangement led to several bamboo flutes.
It is like a tool to slow down the current, but not let the coast erode. If anyone walk near this area, they can hear a piece of music.
I can hear the sound of a flute singing. Walking at night here can be quite shocking.

To be or not to be


(To be or not to be โดย Yang Zhenzhong) 

Yang Zhenzhong runs a test with regards to the rules of nature, he placed it on the lawn next to the Khongka pier.
To be or not to be totally grown bushes are arranged in 10 straight lines.
The naked roots are on top, planted the trees the other way around which is not the normal conditions of planting trees in Thailand.
The artist digs up trees from the soil, plant it again upside down and then branch it to the ground to challenge and explore the nature and plant. Can it exist in extreme conditions?


Who would like to see what will be the outcome of this art experiment? Come and visit at the port of Khongka.

Letter  

(Letter by Rikuo Ueda)

Rikuo Ueda is interested in the power of nature and Universe
especially the secrets of the world from the quantum mechanics.
Throughout his working life, he created a reputation of "using the wind to draw"
So, he created a basic level mechanism of making the nature create artwork for him.
Occasionally, this wind can communicate. He said, in quantum mechanics, Life and death are not different.
This is the same believe  with Buddhism. And Brahmanism
When he landed to Krabi in 2017, he painted postcards with leaves and wind of Krabi Province and send this postcard to his late wife.In this Thailand Biennale, he set up a wooden frame house in a pond of waterfall atThan Boke Koranee Waterfall.

During this 4-month exhibit, the bare wings take the wind from the waterfall and use it to write a letter from his wife on paper. It is written by the sound of Kinnari drama. Rikuo Ueda's passionate artwork can be seen at Than Boke Koranee National Park.

Nobody Nose 

(Nobody Nose by Mayrhofer-Ohata)

Mayrhofer-Ohata's new performance at the Thailand Biennale is called Nobody Nose: Based on a Fake Story.
It is a story that grows into reality. This duo artist has created a fake nose in a small lake.
The landscape of the lake adulterated with symbols and semantic image of a large floating nose sculpture
To come up with the knowledge and ethics involved, this unrealistic object has put environmental issues into the mainstream
by inviting the audience to explore the art. As a matter of fact, this nose sculpture floats over the water and it looks like very ordinary.
But when you look at it.  You can feel the Purity. When the heavenly wind dances between the brains and hearts.
This project presented a nose that is like a bridge between the outside and inside, which is the borderline where the exchange happens.
And that is where something in life is breath taking, whether you are deep asleep or meditating on the highest level of spirituality.You always have to breathe. People who are still alive need to breathe consciously. Have a soul that lives in you.

Let him take you wherever he goes.

(Nobody Nose by Mayrhofer-Ohata)
