Yavuz Gallery is pleased to present IN THE LOOP, a solo exhibition by Thai artist Jittagarn Kaewtinkoy. IN THE LOOP examines the cyclical nature of Thai politics, with its seemingly never-ending social upheavals, protests and intermittent military interventions. This is Kaewtinkoy’s first solo exhibition outside of Thailand.
In this new series of work consisting of paintings, sculptures and installations, Kaewtinkoy draws upon politics of Thailand’s turbulent past to examine ideals of progress, democracy and power and how past events and actions continue to be repeated today. Executed in his signature surreal and symbolic style with bold colours and a twist of dark humour, IN THE LOOP reveals the complexity of political reality and the never-ending cycles of violence, exploitation and controversy in Thailand’s history.
