Prateep Suthathongthai : Take-Turn

May 14 to June 28, 2009
opening reception - Thursday May 14, 2009 at 7 pm


Prateep Suthathongthai uniquely plays out his creativity through the process of shooting, sequencing and displaying negative and positive film with the maintenance of the original record of the films. Photography records actual existence and the artist displays these existences through the negative as well as positive without changing the sequence of his shooting and without touch up. The meticulous process requires some twenty rolls of film to result in each piece of work.

Often times, we see photography presenting realistic image; Prateep has his own spectacular way to collect realistic/actual existence and re-tell it through his work of art. He concentrates on the complexity of what he records with the sense of discovery and exploration to retell in more meaningfully way.

“I take photo and turn around, walk up and down, and go to the same place time after time to look for undiscovered angles”, says Prateep. The artist works on this new series as a continuation from his previous negative film works which focused more on temples and Thai architecture. The new series include modern day construction, amphitheatre in larger scale with a display of large format slides on light box.
