Silpathorn artist in performance Pichet Klunchun brings his art exhibition “Overloaded: The Intangibles of Emptiness” to the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre from February 14 to 17.



Part of Pichet Klunchun Dance Company’s “The Intangibles of Emptiness”, “Overloaded” conveys the limits and physical restriction of human bodies (dancer) and physical confinement of art space (the BACC). Challenging this limitation by creating a new space for both the artists and the venue leads to questioning new possibilities of creation, resulting in new forms and methodology. 

At Artist+Run gallery in early January, Pichet Klunchun Dance Company performed for about two hours, while creating art works, which remained on exhibit following the show. 

At the BACC, which is a much larger space, “Oveloaded: The Intangibles of Emptiness” is a new exhibition in which the artists are constantly performing and creating art works, with the audience, all the time from 10am to 9pm.

 “Dancers are people who use the body to create meaning in the empty space. The movement of the body takes place in the emptiness of the space and ends with emptiness again. With nothing left to remain in that space of emptiness, it is different from other art forms that started from nothing but ended with tangible things,” Pichet explains.
