Stainless steel, mirror, and LED screen
Kamol Tassananchalee creates artworks in various media to represent the relationship between life, experience, cultures, environment, and art. Many of Tassananchalee’s works are commissioned to be installed in public spaces. Responding to the concept of Thailand Biennale 2018’s Edge of the Wonderland Tassananchalee creates a large-scale sculptural structure inspired by the shape of two magnifying glass and installed it on the bank of Krabi River in the heart of Krabi City. By placing the work to face the beautiful scenery of a natural site, the artist urges the audience to explore the magnificent environment of Krabi. In addition, he also displays the mirror to reflect images of the audience and the pictures of underwater scenes in the LED screen attached at the base of the artwork. The artwork connects the audience to the multiple visions of the wonderland; the visions to reality of the surrounding space, the vision of themselves surrounded by Krabi’s environment, and the vision that contains an unreal experience of the underwater world. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
