Komkrit Tepthian

Biography

Born in 1985 in Suphanburi, Thailand, Komkrit obtained an MA in Sculpture and Graphic Art from Silpakorn University in 2015. Since 2011, Komkrit has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Thailand. He also participated in group exhibitions in Laos, Turkey, and more recently in Japan. Recently, he has been selected as one of the Thai artists participating in the inaugural Bangkok Art Biennale in late 2018.

Iconography in Contemporary Conditions

This solo exhibition will feature Komkrit's clever and witty use of everyday objects, combined with his exceptional sculpture skills to create works of art that question and challenge the audience’s view, experience, and memories of the significance of historical cultures and beliefs on historical buildings and objects. This exhibition serves as an informative tool and historical record on a myriad of events and important local wisdom seen in different eras and in modern times.

This series of artworks presents mainly Buddha and images of other deities and examines how the image changes according to the conditions of the era and various factors that affecting it. This series of artworks also presents the history of the images, overlapping with faith, colonization of historical objects, problems with the trading of historical objects and contemporary views of historical objects.
