Dining Time

My latest video installation titled Dining Time can be seen at the Japan Foundation Art Space Bangkok from September 13 to 30. The work puts a question to our contemporary life as to the meaning of dining at a table amid the uniformity of foods, collapsing of families and local communities arising from so called globalization. Also I created this work to pay homage to many artists who can sublimate various social contexts and structures of taking meals into artistic expression, which indicate a close relationship between cuisine and culture in Thailand.
