Bangkok Art Biennale (BAB) is a biannual art festival set in the capital of Thailand spanning a period of 4 months. 2020’s main theme is “escape routes”. BAB 2020 is hosting art festivals in Bangkok’s top 9 locations through January 31, 2021. BACC is one of them.
My favourite place is Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC). I like to see artworks here. I watched art festival on November 7, 2020.

You can play artworks and you will understand better.
Samer’s artworks make me wondered. He uses word associations related to rhymes and pictograms that often link with astrological stars and logos on buildings. Undecipherable, the codes and symbols are entangled scribbles and numbers that only Samer understands.
These artworks I enjoyed and admired most.
Hope you like my post and photos.
Stay safe and Healthy!
