The Anthropos Bangkok show at the Numthong Gallery, 1 -30 June, 2013



The Anthropos Bangkok show at the Numthong Gallery, 
  1 – 30 June 2013, ‘Anthropos: Frailty of Humanity
                                          



  “Of all creatures that breathe and move upon the earth, nothing is bred that is weaker than man.”  Homer, The Odyssey
      From the catalog article for Anthropos by Loredana Pazzini-Paracciani.




The show includes the Works of Jeremy Hiah, Tawan Wattuya, Sufian Hamri@TR853-1, Piyarat   Piyapongwiwat,TadaHengsapkul, Jason Wee, PrasertYodkaew, GenevieveChua, Kamolpan Chotvichai and Ana Prvacki.

The show included a video of some participants in a 'mor lum' show. The video work by Piyarat was entitled 'Liminal Zone'.

According to Wikipedia, in anthropology, liminality (from the Latin word līmen, meaning "a threshold") is a quality of ambiguity or disorientation.
Liminality happens during rituals, when the participants begin to feel that they are no longer who they were before.
They are approaching but have not yet achieved the changed status they will hold when the ritual is complete. 
                                


Ana Prvacki enters into a liminal moment by disrobing on camera
in her artwork, 'Do It Yourself Chivalry'. Makes me wish for a
liminal moment of my own.
                                





  

















 In his work, Prasert Yodkaew
confronts his audience with sketches and mixed-media
 installations based on fantastical creatures,
 three dimensional models and deconstructed
elements of traditional Thai architecture and
mythology. (from the catalog for the Numthong show)
