A Multitude of Possibilities

Hatch Art Project is delighted to present Thai-artist Tawan Wattuya in his first solo exhibition in Singapore. Entitled ‘A Multitude of Possibilities’, the exhibition comprises paintings revealing the artist’s perspectives on global socio-political issues and their interconnected consequences, inviting us to consider the role of political subject matters.

Tawan uses watercolour with a sense of defiance, as a way to communicate his investigations into provocative subjects such as pornography, terrorism, and the stereotypical canons of beauty. He draws upon numerous contemporary global issues and explicates a diversity of interconnected topics for ‘A Multitude of Possibilities’, such as violent extremist propaganda, protests and political change, social movements, and political parties and their opponents. Tawan questions who should take responsibility and care about society if we are to witness it changing for the better.

Questioning the role of the multitude seems to be an important facet of contemporary politics. The exhibition asks who cares about the subsequent steps in progressive social movement politics, by juxtaposing several of Tawan’s contrasting works, such as movement/leadership, spontaneity/organization, revolution/reform and terrorist/Trump. It is apparent that although he addresses different social issues, all global conflicts are interconnected with regional politics.
