Bridging contemporary art and skateboarding, or vice versa, and aiming to make connections between various people within the community, Chemi Rosado-Seijo visited Krabi. The artist met the local skateboarders who are a small, marginalised group still striving against the lack of proper space and resources. After making their acquaintance, Rosado-Seijo decided to work with them in designing a skateboarding plaza within the city’s Thara park. The site is an unfinished and deserted fountain project. By re-appropriating the existing structure, the artist turns an obsolete “readymade” space into a functional art installation for the local skateboarder community. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
