Some Deaths Can’t Be Buried is a solo exhibition by leading Thai artist Thasnai Sethaseree. The exhibition consists of monumental paper collage works and drawings which question Thai historiography and structures of power. It explores an interrelation between concepts of aesthetics and totalitarianism that mediate between the spectacular conditions of the aesthetic events and the intensity of people’s feelings and experiences so as to reconcile differences and political disagreements.
Thasnai Sethaseree was born in Bangkok, Thailand in 1968. Recurrent themes in his practice have included issues of memory, migration, and a philosophical questioning of the nature of knowing. His work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions in notable institutions such as the Singapore Art Museum (2018); MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai, Thailand (2018); Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, Chicago, USA (2016); Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, USA (2015); Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, Manila, Philippines (2013); Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Thailand (2012); RMIT Art Gallery, Melbourne, Australia (2013), amongst others. In 2018, he received the Jurors’ Choice Award as part of the Asia Pacific Breweries Foundation Signature Art Prize.
