This is the seventh la Biennale di Venezia in which Thailand has participated as a country.
This years representative, National Artist of Thailand, Kamol Tassananchalee, in response to the Biennale theme "All the World's Futures" has chosen for the theme of his work, the four elements, Earth, Air, Fire & Water. The concept behind this theme, that regardless of how far the world has evolved or what paths "All the World's Futures" may take, the basic constituent elements of life are eternal.
The Pavilion is comprised of three gallery spaces containing 16 pieces of Artwork. Predominately Sculpture, examples of Tassananchalee's Painting and Printmaking are also included. The large, Aluminium, Stainless Steel and Neon Sculptures, standing like silent sentinels of a future world, are platforms for Hydro and Laser-Cut compositions of Tassananchalee's symbols of the Elements, which are irradiated, projected and cast into gallery spaces, their interactions creating an etherial, futuristic, ambiance, a Sculptural paradigm elucidating his theme, Earth, Air, fire, & Water.
