A TALE OF TWO CITIES A Project by Navin Rawanchaikul
ART HK 12 May 17-20, 2012
Presented by Yavuz Fine Art. Curated by Steven Pettifor Produced by Navin Production
Exploring aspects of community from a geo-cultural perspective, Navin Rawanchaikul's A Tale of Two Cities incorporates deliberately nostalgic photographic studio-style paintings, alongside documentary video, textual work, and sculptural installation. Developed from the artist's penetrations into Hong Kong's historic market areas that centred upon candid interviews with resident vendors, this new chronographic series traces the dramatic changes within urban Asian mercantile traditions. Within such a context, Navin draws Dickensian parallels to his own familial experience being raised within the once bustling central market in his hometown of Chiang Mai, northern Thailand.
