The idea of journey resonates and remains relevant in Pratchaya Phinthong’s oeuvre. It is the mean by which experiences and materials are accumulated, measured, formulated and transmitted into the realm of art. Each journey defines sequences of his artistic operation, which can be interpreted as correspondences between diverse entities. The algorithm of his operation bases on movement and tension between divergent realities, processing an ensemble of narrative devices.
A whole from a different half evokes the unabridged actuality, no matter it is from afar or nearby, collective or personal, mystic or scientific, real or constructed. This exhibition reminisces past actions whilst acquainting with impending occurrence.
