100 Tonson Gallery invited Vipash Purichanont, a Thai curator who recently graduated from School of the Art Institute of Chicago, to curate exhibition that will be exhibited in the month of July-September. The result is a solo exhibition of Nipan Oranniwesna (b. 1962), Thai artist and art professor at Bangkok University. Nipan is well-known internationally from his site-specific installation works that exploring the issues of intellectual experiences on nationalism, memory, cartography, geography and urbanization.
Nipan’s works has been included in International art biennials such as Busan Biennale (2008), and this upcoming Biennale of Sydney (2012). He was also selected to be one of two representative artists in “Globalization… Please Slow Down”, an exhibition of Thai Pavilion at 52nd Venice Biennale (2007). In 2009, Nipan’s solo exhibitions were held at Hong Kong and Singapore for international viewers.
“Speechless” is Nipan’s new exhibition that framed particularly as a respond to historical geography of Lumphini Park, a public park in the heart of Bangkok where the 100 Tonson gallery also resided nearby. Observing repeated activities of people in the public park, he does not only question the meaning of such a continuity of reproductive gestures such as “working-out” but he also begins to think how can an artist has his audiences repeat such an activities in the gallery?
