LOOP RECORDER

Opening: 7th June, h. 18.00 – 20.30
Visits: 8th June – 9th September 2018, h. 14.00 – 18.30

[dip] contemporary art is delighted to present LOOP RECORDER by Italian artist Claudio Citterio (1975, Varese). Claudio Citterio’s work “focuses on two experiences of consciousness: one of the work as potential next action and one of history as unbroken line of the idea through the artworks”. It is from these two “generating but  non-overlapping instances” that Claudio Citterio develops his action in the art. His work focuses on the disorientation of a comprehensive/perceptive path, able to activate an unexpected syllogistic concatenation between artwork, its perception and the observer as an active presence. The exhibition LOOP RECORDER, brings the public into a particular atmosphere in which the concept of light plays an essential role. The exhibition creates a dimension in which the public is directly involved, through four works strictly linked one to the other (Loop, Chronography, Mirror, Transparent/Equinox). A visual cycle, which makes the observer’s presence a kind of rhythmic pattern overlying and revealing/revealed by the same exhibition.

[dip] is delighted to present Indian artists Thukral & Tagra’s first solo show in Thailand.
Jiten Thukral and Sumir Tagra work collaboratively with a wide range of media including painting, sculpture, installations, interactive games, video, performance and design. Thukral & Tagra work on new formats of public engagement and attempt to expand the scope of what art can do. They break out of the mediated and disciplinary world and create multimodal sensory and immersive environments. Their recent work has dealt with the interpretation of Indian mythological narratives and symbols in ways that renew and enliven a largely pedantic and static area of cultural material. PLAY PREY POP OUT explores the idea of transposing Indian mythology into a Thai context by rejuvenating narratives and symbols to give an updated dimension to our traditional understanding of cultural matter and living in ethical solidarity. This exhibition, their first solo show in Thailand, continues the portrayal of mythological events and mathematical assertions through the vocabulary of sports. It is a musing experience of a conscious being trapped in the perplexity of the set of circumstances keeping Ramakien/Ramayana as a central paradigm.
