Neo Centipedian Animal Non–Discovery

Neo Centipedian Animal Non–Discovery


Metal, wire, string, and fiberglass


Panya Vijinthanasarn creates a largescale installation using parts of car as the main material. This work, created for Thailand Biennale 2018, is installed next to a gigantic tree located along the Krabi River bank near the city, where the nature merges with the city. The shape of the assemblage is inspired by the characteristics of spiders and centipedes to reflect how lives are affected by changes in the environment caused by human behavior. Multiples oval shapes are interpreted as the eggs of these animals, as the creatures multiply and spread without control. The installation conveys the artist’s message of seeing industrialization and modern society as the invasion. Humans consume nature and the world has lost its balance for forever. Lives have no other choice but to adapt into these new surroundings. We are entering the actual wonderland where lives have to exist within a destroyed nature. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
