BETWEEN SPACES AND LOOK-OVERLOOK
At The Art Center, Center of Academic Resources, Chulalongkorn University
April 9 – May 15, 2010
Opening reception: Friday April 23, 2010, 6-8pm
“Through the eyes of others, we see the world differently.”
In the face of globalisation where the world has become smaller and smaller, the void inside each human’s heart has actually expanded. In our daily life, we all keep building up a wall to create a personal space and simply live within the small world we have created.
This time around, The Art Center would like to introduce two exhibitions by two young artists that challenge the viewers about their notion of space. These exhibitions are two small worlds, presented through different perspectives, yet originating from the same society the artists and curators live in. Their intention is to allow the viewers to get to know the worlds other than their own and start to see their own world differently. Maybe, we’ll then realise that what we’re looking for in our own world, all the answers we’re trying to get, can actually be found in other people’s worlds, if we care to look at them

Artists: Jackkrit Anantakul and Chawnchom Boonmegurdsup
Curator: Narongsak Nilkhet
Everybody craves for a private space. But in today’s living conditions, especially with all the modern technologies that give us convenience that we’re so attached to, it’s impossible to disconnect ourselves from a public space. The notion of the two spaces has become ambiguous and no one can really distinguish one from the other. Vising Between Spaces will be a challenge for people who try to define private and public spaces.

Educational Program for ‘Between Spaces’
A talk on the ambiguity between private and public spaces, 23 April, 2010 1-2 p.m.
By Thanavi Chotpradit
Look - Overlook
An art project to heighten awareness
Artist: Jedsada Tangstrakulwong
Curator: Pichaya Piyassapan
We live our daily life depending on our sight and the preconceived belief of the world. But sometimes, our mind can trick us to believe we have seen things that we might have never really looked at. So, wouldn’t it be better to actually start noticing the world around us carefully, learning its details, and seeing it for what it truly is.
Educational Program for “Look-Overlook”
Friday May 7, 2010, 1.30-3pm
By Jedsada Tangtrakulwong
At The Art Center 7th Floor, Center of Academic Resources,
Jedsada Tangtrakulwong is always interested in the place he visits, for work or living. Every time he enters a new space, the artist will explore its architectural character to find out how the space is different from others or what its unique qualities are. For this talk, Jedsada will speak about his inspiration and preoccupation with site-specific installations. Also, he will make references to artists who work with the same technique.
