PHKA x The Shophouse 1527

Phāla
at The Shophouse 1527 in collaboration with Cloud Floor and WTP Environmental modifications caused by the needs of a densely growing population - global warming, water degradation, the decline in biodiversity, defaunation, unmanageable excessive waste, and polluted air; are problems of cities around the world, including Bangkok. We rise in rankings, being one of most polluted world cities, while numerous sectors and individuals that took part in these alterations, including the government, still fails to tackle these problems which in turn affect us - every single being - floras and faunas. It is not only ecological but also sociological matters, starts with one and all, then one and all will have to face the outcome eventually. Even those who think they have options in living are destined for the same fate at varying extents and degrees. As in Escher’s Ascending and Descending that we climbed up and down the staircase to nowhere, we are all in an inescapable architecture. You could choose to be those other two who ignore to take part in this cycle, for the time being, but will be brought to realize the fault of negligence sooner or later. Flowers and foliages, in diverse species and characters, have been selected as media to represent us all biotas in this installation, drawing the simulation of their temporality from those with a longer lifespan by accelerating their time under humanly environmental constraints, with the aim of raising questions of transitionally and vibrationally actions and inaction in the cycle.
