"Unwrapping Culture" Contemporary Performance by Pichet Klunchun
June 20 - August 25, 2013
From this June through August, 100 Tonson Gallery and Raimon Land PLC proudly present the gallery debut of Unwrapping Culture, a contemporary performance by Pichet Klunchun, one of the most talented and critically celebrated multi-platform artists of the Thai contemporary art scene. In this original solo project never before presented outside the theater, Pichet will lead his audience into profound traditions relating to “Thai identity” and “Thai culture,” with a performance that is both piquant and socially relevant.
For those unfamiliar with this contemporary Thai master, Pichet is a dancer-choreographer who synthesizes the theory of traditional Thai dance with contemporary modes of interpretation and expression, thereby inducing audiences to enter into his thought processes and unique creative concepts.
In Unwrapping Culture , Pichet will tell stories and offer social critique through a performance entailing body movement and emotional expression, and a styling of staging and lighting solely controlled by the artist's own actions.
Artist Profile: After receiving his degree in Thai Classical Dance at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, he pursued theatre both as dancer and choreographer at high-profile occasions. He has participated lately in several intercultural performing arts programs as a Thai representative and as an international dancer-choreographer in Asia and Europe.
Also Pichet received several awards such as Silpathorn Award in Performing Arts (2006), ‘Routes’ ECF Princess Margriet Award for Cultural Diversity from European Cultural Foundation (2008), Citizen Hero Award from Sanya Dharmasakti Institute for Democracy (2009), and received award from the French Ministry of Culture "Chevalier of the French Arts and Literature Order" for his contribution to the influence of Culture in France, in Thailand and all over the world. “Unwrapping Culture” will have 14 rounds (approximately 2 hours).

Icelandic nature is prominent in Eliasson's work, and his artistic relationship with it often involves collection or documentation that is scientific in tone. The country becomes a sensory laboratory where ideas can be developed and evolved into art, as evidenced in the multiple photographic series that would seem to witness a near compulsive need for collecting.
TAKA ISHII GALLERY, Tokyo presents NOBUYOSHI ARAKI - EroReal
7 June - 27 July 2013
Magazine pin-ups aren't interesting, are they? Especially now that they're shot digitally, they lack eroticism. They're doing it wrong. That's why I had to come in. It's not about an ambiance or concept; it's about being real. Not realism, but real?ero-real. I have to say it straight. It's not about nudity; clothed subjects can be erotic.
