Non-Being by Itself

By Kamin Lertchaiprasert (in co-operate with 20 young artists and culture activists), THAILAND

16  – 19 January 2014

“Platforms” Southeast Asia, Art Stage Singapore 2014

Non-Being by Itself  is an installation anchored by a human-size sculpture in which the visitor can sit and reflect, surrounded by a collection of personal stories told by various contributors on video. In Lertchaiprasert’s words: ‘The story of common people, might allow the audiences to gain some thoughts or perspective about the worth that lies beneath daily life. If we understand the state of non-being by itself, meaning nothing can exist without the others, then it might trigger awareness of our own life’s worth and also of others’. It is believed that we could be an inspiration for others and can send out creative energy from experiences of knowledge, of love, of compassion and of social conscience by starting from being responsible for our duties and our way of life the best we can. These small gestures of activities from all of us will become the energy that contributes to the society.’
