Curated by Suebsang Sangwachirapiban, Visual Field: Senses & Transfigurations is an exhibition expressing the conceptualisation of data visualisation; this includes the perception of visual information, sensing of the image, and the rationale behind the creation of each piece and transformation into contemporary art practices.

An artistic eye is naturally sensitive to visual elements, and therefore beneficial to the conversion of visual information into creative processes and into a subject for art. Through the artist’s visual field function, the artist may process and transmit images differently depending on their distinct realities – with variation in culture, technology, societal changes, economic and environmental changes, beliefs, values, and nature or state of mind, etc. This results in different interpretations, and hence artwork.

The five artists featured in this exhibition include: Kade Javanalikhikara, Jedsada Tangtrakulwong, Navin Tantanadaecha, Sanitas Pradittasnee and Sujin Wattanawongchai. The artworks manifest each artist’s processing, interpretations, and composition of their artistic visions. 14 selected pieces will reflect the visualisation of current subjects and situations – glocalisation and regionalism. While witnessing these artworks and trying to decipher the meanings, audiences are also invited to recognize their visual processes and to share their experience and interpretation of what they see. This selection of Thai contemporary art is evidence and a reflection of the society and its development of art in these current times – reflecting the society’s identity, changes, beliefs, notion and spirit, and what it means to be “contemporary” now.
