Pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion pro­vides col­lec­tive cathar­sis

Thailand Tatler - - CONCIERGE -

It has been two years since the pass­ing of His Majesty King Bhu­mi­bol Adulyadej on Oc­to­ber 13, 2016 and as an homage to the late monarch, a pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion by Chakrit Leelachupong de­picts the king­dom’s feel­ing of loss. En­ti­tled The White Wall, the se­ries of black and white pho­to­graphs record or­di­nary peo­ple’s show of grief when the walls of the Grand Palace be­came a place for the dis­play of mourn­ing for the beloved monarch. “For me, the white wall marks the di­vid­ing line be­tween the liv­ing and the dead,” says Chakrit. With skill­ful com­po­si­tion and con­trasts be­tween light and shadow, the ex­hi­bi­tion ex­udes not only melan­choly but also a mys­te­ri­ous rit­ual-like at­mos­phere. The ex­hi­bi­tion, which be­gins on No­vem­ber 3, runs un­til De­cem­ber 28 at Kath­mandu Photo Gallery. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion call 0-2234-6700.
