Students visiting Manit Sriwanichpoom's 'Horror in Pink' showcase at the Government College of Fine Arts during Chennai Photo Biennale 2019. Horror in Pink was intended to provoke criticism of the consumerist fever in Thailand that enslaved its people and eventually led to a financial crisis that ended the country’s status as an Asian Tiger economy. Through this work, he intentionally positions the Pink Man - 'a Thai man without a conscience', against the backdrop of the state-controlled narrative of violent incidents across history and introduces them to the current generation, to refresh their memories.
