BANGKOK — While the sight of a woman’s head in a microwave with six burning joss sticks may recall Sylvia Plath, the image is a local illustrator’s reflection on the collission of her heritage and modern life.
Descended from mainland Chinese ancestors, Kanitharin Thailamtong, aka Kanith, is familiar with smoking incense, prayers and dining around a small round table in their small shophouse.
Her work is a curious look at the the changing eating habits and dining styles from round-table feasts to convenience-store microwave meals.
The exhibition launches at 5pm on March 4 and runs through May 21 at The Gallery, located on the 36th floor of the Pullman Bangkok Hotel G on Silom Road. It can be reached by mototaxi from BTS Chong Nonsi exit No. 3.
