G13 Project Room: Nature is Not Saddened by Kao

 

The exhibition ‘Nature is not saddened’ displays a series of artworks from a Thai contemporary printmaking artist, Chisanuphol Presanvorakitkool, that talks about a vile relationship between humans and Mother Nature in imaginary regard. As human beings whose existence depends entirely on resources of the earth, we cannot deny this interdependency that keeps us alive which allows us to live our days. However, it is also us humans who exploit these resources and barely see possible adverse effects on nature. Even worse, we hardly admitting our existence as part of Mother Nature as we only treat it as a means of catering to our material satisfaction. In exchange for our reckless and ruthless instrumentalization, we are then struck back with all sorts of manner of natural disasters and various environmental changes while unprepared.

In this exhibition, the artist employs the use of symbols and allegories that are closely linked to gods, myths, religions, or fables to convey this love-hate relationship. Through the art of printmaking, the artworks unravel the artist’s standpoint about the notion of ‘God’, in an attempt to express his perspective that ‘God’ is but an inventive concept. Also, since we are already suffering from all these environmental and ecological changes, the artist deems that ‘God’ could also be in the form of Mother Nature.

‘Nature is not saddened’ will runs from 28th May until 8th Jun 2020 at G13 Gallery. The gallery opens daily from 11 am to 5 pm, closed on Sundays and Public Holidays.
