This is part of the official press release.. “Sculpture 2D – Very Korean. Very European. Very Universal. Kim Young-Hee combines her works of the most recent period, from both the Western and Eastern areas of culture, together in an enlightening dialog for the very first time: The result illustrates enigmatic, vivid sculptural compositions in the form of pictures, as well as a playful and humorous light heartedness, which sometimes manages to turn our Western way of thinking completely upside down. Her latest works of art are filigree, often illustrations of only a few centimetres in size, which are eternalised in a state of changelessness with the aid of photography.
Thailand - Same same, but different!
Bamboo scaffolding, knotted aerial lines, hand painted signs or converted plastic bags: The objects photographed in Thailand by Thomas Kalak, are sometimes unusual, both funny and peculiar, and often mind-boggling. Far from the world of clichés, Kalak finds motifs that complement and enhance the famous image of the country and simultaneously document the unshakable cheer of the Thai people as true masters of improvisation.
Individually portrayed and objectively documentary photographed, the strange yet commonplace, at least in Thailand, objects and arrangements remind us of the famous “ready-mades” from the beginning of the 20th century. This book is a “must have” for all Thailand enthusiasts, because everyone has seen the collection of items at some time or other, but often not really consciously.
