False Things includes new works not previously on view. The works presented vary across mediums, and include photographs, watercolours and found objects turned sculptural. Together, they boldly contemplate the mendacity of beliefs and materiality, appearances and facades, history and image-making, and societal norms and values.

In The Ash series, Lalit Wisutthisophon portrays with unflinching rawness the futility of existence and its eventual decay. Her photographic and video works reveal the falsity of meanings and material objects we delude ourselves with.

Latthapon Korkiatarkul works with various found objects only to transform it. He rejects aspects of its observable appearances, choosing instead to tease out the conceptual possibilities hidden within the objects.

Nuttapon Sawasdee takes recognisable historical images as his point of departure. He isolates the main actors in these images and renders them into small watercolour figures measuring as small as one centimetre.

Dresses and Desire is a series composed of women's clothes in black draped over wooden frames standing for Pitchanan Sornyen's secret desires and hidden behaviours.
