The Toot Yung Gallery is pleased to present "No Superego" Bangkok's first solo show by Tada Hengsakpul
19 January - 4 March 2011
Opening reception January 19th at 7 pm
Tada Hengsapkul, born in 1987 in Nakhon Ratchasima, has had a camera in his hands since the age of fifteen.
This very passionate young Thai photographer uses film cameras and video to capture hidden identities of his homeland, Thailand.
The freshness and realism of his photos shift conventional standards of image making in Thailand as well as old power structures and
pre-defined gender roles. The crudeness of the nudes, the sexually explicit pose of his models, and the irony of certain scenes emphasize
the gap between his works and photos which are praised by the local critique and censorship board.
This exhibition is Hengsapkul’s first solo show in Bangkok; it presents a broad selection of quality works.
From landscapes to nude, portraits and abstract color fields Hengspkul’s photos all have a strong emotional
and elegiac core which will certainly not leave the viewer indifferent.
