Opening Reception WEDNESDAY 26. FEBRUARY 6-8 PM
TCB Art Inc. in collaboration with Tentacles is pleased to announce Common Traces a group exhibition by five emerging Thai artists
We exist in a multitude of intersecting structures that are not always visible at first glance. Common Traces highlights the continuous process in which different realities are fabricated through the reciprocal relationships between common history, personal experience and the flow of image. This process leaves traces and residues from the decisions and actions that were made.
What we can trace may conform to the remains of this fabrication; the residues we grasp from the variability of social reality, the impressions of the invisible structures that surround us and shape us, or the hints of a place that no longer exists.
The artist in Common Traces intersect their own subjective experiences with the collective structures and spaces; to look for slippage in reality in an attempt to make sense of the uncertainties and the unknowns.
