‘YOUTH’ SOLO EXHIBITION BY CHARDCHAKAJ WAIKAWEE
26/05/2011
Exhibition
Youth

DoBeDo contributor Chardchakaj Waikawee is having a solo exhibition at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC).

“YOUTH” is an exhibition of photography and image installations capturing a group of street teenagers in Bangkok city. They are not educated. They do not have any family. They live without any rights and without recognition of their achievements in this metropolis. The idea of identity card is irrelevant to them as they exist in social displacement. These youths have created their own law, refusing to abide to any moral values. Their code of conduct is based on the survival of daily struggles. To them, “breath” bears the truth of reality, holding far more importance than romantic ideas of “happiness”.

DATE: 4th June 2011 – 26th June 2011
