“Lak-ka-pid-lak-ka-perd: The Bangkok Invisible Landscapes” (the Thai title literally translates as: “sometimes open, sometimes closed”), a project curated in collaboration with Sopawan Boonnimitra, aimed at opening up a variety of interpretations of Bangkok as a specific site, viewed from diverse perspectives such as political, social, sexual and technological imaginaries and narratives. The exhibition was built on the assumption that the “invisible landscapes” addressed in the title can be regarded as symptomatic for a new form in which capital, politics, media, and technology coexist in the context of an Asian metropolis. The impact of their invisibility is affecting almost everyone, as well as the very notion of what can be called “the visible”. In the exhibitions at the Art Center for Academic Resources and at House Rama Theatre (an alternative cinema), eleven artists from India, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, and Sweden participated.
