In Transit is an exhibition and in part an experimental space by Jakrawal Nilthamrong and four new young artists, namely Eakarpon Settasuk, Kaensan Rattanasomrerk, Siwakorn Tesabumrung and Nasree Labaideeman, interpreting and defining their aspect of visual materials, transmitting possible perceptions of the various forms of works to the audience.

Not taking into account the screening of Thai traditional outdoor and mobile cinemas still seen today, using film projectors, as we enter the digital age, the production of celluloid films together with the screening of these films in cinemas, seems to be coming to an end. Jakrawal as an artist and filmmaker has created this work looking at this moment of transition in the space and context of an artwork.

With the film era fading and the developments of moving image technology being used more and more, this has led to the gradual disappearance of the physical, materials that can be seen and touched, from celluloid film to magnetic tapes and now to digital files. Jakrawal chooses to respond to this slow disappearance and their becoming a thing of the past by introducing us to an imaginary image of the future. As well as presenting us with the moving images that we see before us in continuous time, Jakrawal gives importance to the materials and the environmental composition that produces a moving image. By revealing the structure of the film projector and its process as part of the work, our senses are invited to perceive the hidden movement and changes in the moving image.

Another important part of the In Transit exhibition is a platform given to a group of four new young artists, film major graduates who have been invited to experiment with visual materials and their understanding and perspective of transition but outside of the familiar space and context in which they have studied.

In this digital age when things move and happen rapidly, Siwakorn is interested in the time spent waiting for photos taken with a film camera, compared to digital photos. Nasree’s work concerns the transformation of an art work from exhibition space to photos on today’s social network. The works of both Eakarpon and Kaensan question beliefs and objects which are both visible and invisible at the same time. Eakarpon uses a video camera to record and respond to mysterious beliefs around the area called Kao Kala (Kala Mountain), while Kaensan addresses the changes to an object according to belief and faith, seeking for what remains and what disappears.

This transference to art exhibition space for those who have studied and worked with the moving image in the familiar conventional sense might be regarded as experimental, looking for possibilities in a different work process, an interesting transition, which raises the question of visual materials representation in the future. This exhibition also hopes that the space used by the artists and the audience will help cement a relationship between the moving image of the film world and that of the art world. This exhibition will be an introduction to the further extension of new diverse dialogue and future experimental projects.
