“TRUELIES” is a collaborative curatorial and critical exchange by the five contributing artists: Top Changtrakul, Sujin Wattanawongchai, Aphichart Pholprasert, Suebsang Sangwachirapiban and Jiraporn Laocharoenwong. It was conceived from our continuing conversations about today’s complicated situations. The word suggests a challenge in considering what is true and what is not, bearing in mind the world’s constant turmoil in the political, financial, intercultural and religious spheres, in the past and at present. Some of these difficult issues may find comprehension and recognition among a large group of people while at the same time remaining perplexing to others. In such an ambiguous time, we cannot gain an insight into the matters. How come? Although many artists have attempted to explore their surroundings and reflect social phenomena using the tool they know best – art, we have never quite risen to a better state of being yet. Therefore, what our group is attempting to do here is to (re)offer solutions to several of the situations we are facing with.

With artists taking turn to curate and critique each other’s works, the show features artworks of various ideas and forms, including video, painting, printmaking, installation and interactive art. Once inside the space, the audience is stimulated to distinguish truths from lies.
