AVANI+ RIVERSIDE CELEBRATES EXPRESSION WITH “IN BETWEEN” CURATED BY AVAGARDE ART

Bangkok, 30 August 2020 – Some of Bangkok’s most exciting artistic talent come together on the banks of the Chao Phraya in a new exhibition at Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel.

Curated by AVAgarde Art, “IN BETWEEN” is a celebration of freedom, diversity, passion and equality as the perspectives of five artists are expressed through various media to reflect the movement and change in modern society. Guests and visitors are invited to come and experience the zeitgeist as represented through contemporary art, by the river throughout September and October 2020.

“IN BETWEEN” features new and original works by selection of fresh talent. Renowned for his environmental pieces and philosophical messages, Pichai Pongsasaovapark uses ripples to express how he sees society shaping lives with culture, belief and values. Artist and designer Pavisa Meesrenon champions local artisanal techniques and is known for incorporating Thai culture into her work. She uses the “tung”, a traditional flag design from northern Thailand, and zodiac signs to represent unity and harmony. An established artist with seven exhibitions to date, Niam Surachai Mawornkanong channels his passion for profound beauty into his moving pieces. Inspired by the ocean, his work explores freedom and eternity. Naraphat Sakarthornsap works with flowers to present ideas of equality, diversity and the meaning of life. In this new series, he asserts that “life has a right to grow freely” via flower photographs in three dimensions. A Thai artist with an international reputation, Gongkan Kantapon Metheekul creates installation art to reflect contemporary urban life. With the Chao Phraya as a theme, he suggests the serenity of freedom.

The exhibition opens on 10 September 2020 at locations throughout Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel and guests are invited to explore the perspectives of these unique talents, as they promote freedom of expression in an open society, where diversity is embraced and ideas are welcome.
