H Gallery Chiang Mai is pleased to announce an international exhibition by LIGHT SPACE PROJECTS, a non-profit visual arts venture established in 2010 in Thailand. Working with emergent and established artists, Rituals of Exhibition II builds on an earlier project with Chiang Mai University and explores how complex forms can be developed from the principles of abstraction, or so-called reductive modes in art practice. Rituals of Exhibition II also points to aspects of relational art as the works on show, invite engagement with an idiosyncratic web of interconnections.
The artists in Rituals of Exhibition II include: John Aslanidis/Pedro Boese/Merric Brettle /Katja Brinkmann/Nate Ethier/Wolfgang Flad/Ludovica Gioscia/Brent Hallard/Gilbert Hsiao/Nithiphat Hoisangthong/Jan Holthoff/Franziska Hünig/Mit Jai Inn/Isabel Kerkermeier/Jeremy Kibel/Andrew Leslie/Julie Oppermann/Rob de Oude/Mel Prest/Debra Ramsay/David Rhodes/Giles Ryder/Gunna Schmidt/Andreas Schmid/Alexandra Schlund/Mark Sengbusch/Jessica Snow/Elisabeth Sonneck/Nicola Stäglich/Michael Swingle/Klaus-Martin Treder/Tilman/Anke Völk/Nancy White/Patricia Zarate
LIGHT SPACE PROJECTS focuses on site-specific installations and exhibitions aiming to connect diverse and international artists in collaboration with universities and experimental exhibition spaces. The venture is particularly concerned with encouraging greater awareness of contemporary art for the Asia Pacific context. LIGHT SPACE PROJECTS’ activities have included educational and residency projects with Chiang Mai University (2011), KMITL University Latkrabang and the University of Phayao (both, 2013). Exhibitions include Gallery Seescape Chiang Mai (2011) SNO Gallery Sydney (2011) with Thai, Australian and Korean artists; and Northern Lights focusing on Thai Contemporary Art (2012) at Artereal Gallery in Sydney.
The Talent Agency is a temporary moniker for this group of artists and refers to the possibilities of open models for presentation.
Part of this exhibition was funded through the generous support of the Australia Thailand Institute.
