The Ratchaprasong ART MAZE

By Urban by Nature

15 Oct 16 - 15 Nov 16

AT Skywalk BTS Chitlom

Nature will spill from the minds of top Thai contemporary artists into six innovative, site-specific installations to be discovered for an entire month along a skywalk in the heart of Bangkok.

Six artists will transform the skywalk between the BTS Chitlom station and CentralWorld with their interpretations of nature in an urban space for this celebration of Thai creativity.

Whether conceptual, thought-provoking, critical or poetic, the works are infused with the six artists’ very personal approaches to the theme.

Nature’s heart beats at the core of this in-situ exhibition which tasks the artists to work with local craftsmen and natural elements while juggling modern notions of just what nature means. The results are nothing less than barometers of ecological attunement.

The event also serves as a great introduction to some of the most prominent contemporary Thai artists and their contributions toward shifting how we relate to nature.
