A Formation

A Formation


Rip-stop nylon, plastic tubing


Along Noppharat Thara Pier, where tourists are ferried back and forth to Krabi’s outlying islands, a series of inflatable men’s business suits flutter atop a line of flagpoles. The suits are inspired by an oral history of Rania Ho’s uncle who was conned into travelling from Hong Kong to Germany for medical school and found himself working for a time as a suit retailer. A Formation addresses the dynamics of globalization, geopolitics, history and gender with bemused irreverence. Nature, especially wind, is an unpredictable force. For A Formation erratic gusts are harnessed to give this work its shape, contrasting the sublime power of nature to the futile manifestations of our humanity. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
