pattara CHANRUECHACHAI
Artistic practice focuses on perceptions, visible truths, appearance, disappearance, past and current issues, while dealing with renditions in photographic imageries, sculptures and installations as his ways to deliver ideas across boundaries. His works mostly suggest ideas about intangible pieces of information or specific events; what took place in the past, present and future, what is absent and what is present. Chanruechachai usually explores and revisits memories and shows fragments of forgotten knowledge in order to create narratives that allow us to be a part of their construction. The ghost of architectures, the tracing of events from newspapers, stacks of newspapers also appeared in many of his previous works. Archives and his collection of photographic imageries always play the most prominent part to link us, the audience, to their meaning, before we find ourselves being lost in his webs of ghostly images in the passage of time.
