First Bangkok Art Biennale Shows Off the Weird, Wonderful and World-Famous

BANGKOK – A giant red breathing lotus flower, a huge white dog and a larger-than-life pink flying pig were all on display to the public on Wednesday as part of the first Bangkok Art Biennale.

Seventy-five artists from 33 countries are showing work dotted across 20 venues around the Thai capital including temples, riverside buildings, malls, hotels, galleries and outdoor spaces.

On a lawn outside One Bangkok, the petals of South Korean artist Choi Jeong-hwa’s “Breathing Flower” rise as it inhales, and fall as it exhales.

Not far from it, a giant white cartoonish canine by Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara titled “Your Dog” stands seemingly happily alone watching traffic.

Inside the venue, another of Choi’s installations, a pink metallic, winged “Love Me Pig” faces out of a window as if contemplating freedom, while upstairs there is a series of works including oil paintings by Thai artist Natee Utarit.

Other works by world-renowned artists including Marina Abramovich (Serbia), Jean Michel Basquiat (United States), Yayoi Kusama (Japan) and AES+F (Russia) as well as Thai artists such Montien Boonma, the Souled Out Studio collective, and rising star Kawita Vatanajyankur are available to view until the end of the biennale on Feb. 3, 2019.

The works range from installations, sculptures, paintings, videos and photographs.
