Wit Pimkanchanapong - Not Quite a Total Eclipse

September 3rd – October 25th, 2009
Opening Reception - Thursday September 17th, 2009 at 7 pm.


100 Tonson Gallery presents “Not Quite a Total Eclipse” by Wit Pimkanchanapong, one of the most outstanding Thai contemporary artists.  Wit has participated in various exhibitions in locally and internationally including; Japan, Italy, France, and United Arab Emirates.  This year, he has been invited to partake in Asia Pacific Triennial in Queensland, Australia.   At 100 Tonson Gallery, the artist will present his latest innovative sculpture which has been developed from his interest in mechanical systems observed from various machineries and branched out into the creation of artworks.  The artist combines architectural along with engineering skills to create special art piece, which becomes the unique characteristic of artist.
 
Not Quite a Total Eclipse is inspired by Wit’s interest in the light and shadow that were cast in his previous work “Mai-Ya-Rab” during the night time.  His interest leads to the process of developing the system, researching the topic, and exploring the possibilities. Using the combination of robotic movement and the light and shadow, Wit creates a site-specific installation work for 100 Tonson Gallery.  The artist re-creates the total eclipse phenomenon that is caused by the alignment of the planets.  Although the natural phenomena only last for a short period of time, its prolonged effect causes people to react differently: excited, scared, confused, curious, and happy.
