Asian Art Festival series 4 – The Interrogation on Tourism

The Interrogation on Tourism – The Spatial Perception Between Commerce and Religion

(Photo: 蔣宇傑) The very first Bangkok Art Biennale 2018 (BAB) takes place from space of religious worship along Chao Phraya River to commercial hub between Bangkok Art and Cultural Center (BACC) and BAB Box which is exact the major area of tourist attractions in Bangkok. The theme, Beyond Bliss, intends to build the heterotopia space among tourist spots. Regardless of its outcome, Bangkok Art Biennale 2018 makes effort to present contemporary art within religion space to bargain with commercial space. What social taboos these art works might oppose to? What kind of paradoxical relation between art and religion? What kind of spatial perceptions are conflicted in commercial and contemporary art scenes, both with similar but incompatible configurations? The Politics of Exposition once demonstrates the relation between exposition and department store; as Biennale once again confronts with commercial space, how would exhibition and commercial space reconfigure? How can customers once again become audience of art exhibition? Bangkok Art Biennale 2018 blurs the boundary between spaces and offer a chance to let us rethink: how art commercial exhibition could reconfigure the spatial perception in our life?
