August 7 – September 7 2011
Fall Silent/Mysterious Flights is the inaugural installation for H Project Space, a project room for experiments in contemporary art and curatorial practice at the 2nd floor of H Gallery Bangkok. The installation will be activated by performer Henry Tan on the opening evening.
Minimal and contemplative, Chitti Kasemkitvatana’s intervention allows the room of the H Project Space to breath through the use of specially cut mirrors, cloth silhouettes and evocations of a temple structure. The artist is interested in the transcendent sense of time and space we experience on flights across continents, states of being between an origin and a destination that could be understood as a temporal void. Kasemkitvatana aims for parallels in meditation practice and relationships of love.
Fall Silent/Mysterious Flights allows for a subtle disorientation of H Project Space to take hold and a curious enigma of experience take over.
Chitti Kasemkitvatana was born in Bangkok and is a graduate in fine art from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia. From 2003-2010 he lived as a Buddhist monk in Northern Thailand.
