‘Gifts of the Sea’ by Anna Zolotukhina
‘Gifts of the Sea’ is Central: The Original Store’s latest exhibition and was launched with the intention to raise awareness of World Environment Day which occurred earlier this week on 5 June 2022. This eco-conscious art exhibition features the works of Russian artist Anna Zolotukhina, produced in collaboration with Whale Tail Phuket.

‘People and Their World’ by Jatenipat Ketpradit
This solo photography exhibition, ‘People and Their World,’ is undoubtedly a must-see. Jatenipat Ketpradit, also known as JKBoy, captures the lives of tribal people around the world at numerous locations including the Altai Mountains, the Mongolia-Russia Border, Siberut, and Ethiopia. In order to capture the photographs that depict the lives and spirits of the tribes realistically, the Thai photographer lived with the people from different tribes as he faced harsh weather, challenging terrains, and cultural differences. This exhibition’s series of photographs has attained several accolades including ‘Photographer of the Year 2021,’ three gold medals, and more.
‘People and Their World’ is on display until 30 June 2022 at River City Bangkok. Find out more via the website.
‘Out of this World’ by Tawee Ratchaneekorn and Torlarp
A dual exhibition by two artists from different generations, ‘Out of this World,’ as the name suggests, is all about creating art that exceeds the ordinary. In this exhibition, Tawee Ratchaneekorn allows his imagination to run wild as he creates art that helps him escape the ongoing social issues and the disparity of circumstances, and as a result, placing his hope in future generations. On the other hand, in contrast to envisioning the future, Torlarp Larpjaroensook searches the past through layers of time and space by investigating our roots, a recollection of selves, and our precedents. This exhibition embraces the science fiction genre, and it is where the future meets the past in the present.
‘Out of this World’ is on display until 10 July 2022 at MOCA Bangkok. Find out more via the website.
