Exhibition: Jakkai Siributr – Transient Shelter

Jakkai Siributr - Transient Shelter

Exhibition dates: 17 April – 31 May 2014

Transient Shelter is an exhibition of new works by Jakkai Siributr, opening next week in New York City. Jakkai has long been known as one of Thailand’s leading artists working with textiles, producing meticulously handmade tapestry and installation works that make powerful statements about religious, social and political issues in contemporary Thailand. A main preoccupation of his art is the interaction between Buddhism and materialism in modern life, and the everyday popular culture of Thailand. In recent years, he has incorporated other materials and media in his work, including industrial and found materials, sound, and video. For Transient Shelter, Jakkai has produced a series of self-portrait photographs that have him ’embodying’ the elaborately embroidered and ornamented uniforms that are also part of the exhibition, along with a video work.
