“BAB 2020″escape routes in Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre

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.

In search for survival we confront our possible futures through the eyes and vision of artists and creative thinkers whose art and action will offer us hope and desire for a better humankind and caring for the earth.

Law of Journey (2016) is a culmination of Ai’s visiting 40 refugee camps in 20 countries. An all-black inflatable boat carrying faceless refugee figures. They represent those in exile escaping from Bangladesh, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Gaza, Mexico and countries across the globe.

In Eins und Eins (One and One), Suryodarmo imagines her body as a suffering country that endures many aggressions in a silent manner. Eventually, it reacts physically in the form of nausea that subsequently produces vomiting.

Untitled, 2020
artwork by Peerachai (Samer) Patanapornchai

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!
