DASH : THAILAND ISSUE (2013)

"Khon"

In this article about Thailand in DASH MAGAZINE. 

I create piece of art to tell about my country society and some point of view of my own way.

so i present my visual in this concept of Thai society - and use "Khon" ,Thai actor's mask : one of the most famous dance drama of Thailand, Khon's head has some famous Proverb in our history as a symbol of powerful people - when a man put actor's mask on his head. He became obsess with power, corruption and money. I adjust the concept of khon's head into this proverb instead. Like the top of the head show us the most powerful animal in food chain - and secondary less power and the bottom part is the weakest - imply the concept to our caste system.
