Lovers of art will be pleased to hear that Chiang Mai’s most exciting art venue will be holding a new exhibition by famous local artist Kamin Lertchaiprasert, ‘Timeless Present Moment’.
This solo exhibition is a retrospective with selected artworks from two periods in the artist’s life. For the past thirty-six years, Kamin has “created art as a means to find value and meaning in life. Not only as a form of meditation, the artist also considers art as a process to discover human values within oneself and the absolute truth”.
Kamin is a prolific artist, having worked with an array of creative mediums and activities including drawing, painting, reading, meditating, pottery making, wax sculpture, and live and recorded performance. For him, “the learning process underlying these activities contributes to the understanding of the present moment as the point between the past and the future. Everything that happens, happens only in the present moment, neither in the past nor in the future. This concept has rendered the latest collection of his work under the name ‘Timeless Present Moment’.”
The exhibition will continue until February 6th, 2017. Admission fee is 150 baht for adults, 100 baht for students.
