Will Not Cry in Public is a media based art exhibition by yield, a group of young artists from Bangkok. “yield” consists of Olan Netrangsi, Pathompon Tesprateep, Sathit Sattarasart, graduated from Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Fine Arts and Applied Art. Born in the 1970s and shared their interest in independent film, alternative music and culture, yield actively involved with a group of young independent film and video makers based in Bangkok. This exhibition focuses on public and private issue, control/yield, and fiction/reality. This young generation artists expressed their individual concern on different level and dimension of social structure and media propaganda.

Olan Netrangsi’s works consisted of interactive video and 2 channel screens TV addressing the power of media propaganda in daily basis on how it effect our lives and how much can we resist them? It raised the questions to us whether we have to be the victim of media, in order to blend in with the society. Is it too power and able to brainwash us to automatically following their marketing strategy?

Working as music maker, artist and video maker, Pathompon Tesprateep’s meditated works depict his selective point of view to the society. In the exhibition, he present a series of downloaded cover version of Billy Joel’s song, ‘Just the Way you are’ performed by different people around the world from youtube, the biggest video community among virtual society. He integrates his video, “there is no center of the universe”, which is inspired by Caspar David Friedrich, a German landscape artist, portraying the abandonment of all faiths.

Interested in fiction and reality, the new video work of Sathit Sattarasart, “This conversation can serve no purpose anymore“, is a quote of HAL 9000, a super computer in Stanley Kubrick’s film, “2001: A Space Odyssey. Instead of spoon-feeding audiences with direct visual images, he twisted the way of watching moving-pictures by activating the audiences’ imagination based on character’s conversation. Along with the video, his photograph and text-based painting correspond to various dimensions of spaces in the movie, reality and imagination.

Plus an experimental literature of N. Paksnavin which is called ‘No god No cry – Mocumenta’, consists of a short story and deals with the subject of surrendering humanity to the nature. And it also raises the question of the origin of all the literatures in cyberspace.
