S.A.C. Residency Program has invited artist Lisa Anderson from Australia, Song Xi from China, Ho Hao from Taiwan and a Thai artist Sittikorn Khawsa-ad. It is such a great opportunity to share the experiences through building up a contemporary art exhibition.
The starting idea in forming the exhibition was from ghost, spirits and believes especially in local Thai area, Chiang Mai city will be the focal point. The four artists did their research on local traditions by traveling around, experiencing and meeting people of the new landscape of Chiang Mai city. The works of the artists addressed their unique viewpoints on our communities which had unfolded the fragility of being human that rely a lot on supernatural.
Human Horizon derived from observing the methodology of the artists in approaching the subject of ghost, spirits and believes. The works not only stand for aesthetic but also as reflection of ‘being human’ from the deep in. The works also help explaining the impact of supernatural over human mind even nowadays. Ho Hao addresses his interest in Thai amulet and black magic on his paintings and small sculptures. Lisa Anderson formed up the spirits of landscapes from Thai ghost stories. Song Xi expressed his faith in nature into his installation pieces while Sittikorn Khawsa-ad is admiring the power of human as farmers.

The Human Horizon will be on view from 8th February – 15th March 2020. The opening ceremony will be on 15th February 2020.
