Intro
The exhibition gives a kaleidoscopic, yet unified portrait of Bangkok and it will probably demand a second look from the viewer in order to sense the underlying bewildered, hazy and fragmented characteristics of the city.

Artist list

Marie-Louise Kristensen
I came to Bangkok in December/January 2012/13 to do a bit of research for my work.

The numerous experiences and impressions I got there from my encounters with different forms and materials and the - for me - outlandish aesthetics created the starting point for my exhibition: The Asian cityscape, the daily life of its people and, in a strangely reversed, way my own responding and reactions.
I saw, I heard, I touched, I felt, I tasted, but was never able to really grasp and understand much.

My pieces combine fragments and elements, physical as well as psychological, from my stay in Bangkok. I aim at new unities and try to obtain what might be called an internal, formative logic.

The exhibition gives a kaleidoscopic, yet unified portrait of Bangkok and it will probably demand a second look from the viewer in order to sense the underlying bewildered, hazy and fragmented characteristics of the city.

The exhibition as well as my travel to Bangkok was made possible through grants from Statens Kunstfond/Danish Arts Foundation og Statens Værksteder for Kunst/Danish Art Workshops.
