b. 1975, works and lives in Bangkok, Thailand
Single-channel video, site-specific sculptural installation with wooden construction incorporating wood from Ayutthaya house, iron beams from decommissioned post-World War II factory and 6,000 cast brass pieces, wooden construction
300(H)*500*500cm | Brass sphere 300*300cm | Single-channel video 29 minutes 34 seconds
Edition of 3 + 1AP

This captivating and intricate installation is based on an amalgamation of grand narratives and small narratives, the rethinking of history, and a famous Thai sweet.

Using as a launching point the motif of thong yod, a supposedly Thai dessert made with egg yolks, the story of its origins is reconstructed within the piece—from the wooden frames made from the beams of an Ayutthaya-era house to the thousands of teardrop-shaped, floating brass pieces forming a 3-meter hanging orb.

An homage to the earliest years of globalization, Golden Teardrop is demonstrative of how the fates of people and things, and of nations, are shaped by complex, transnational chains of action, agency and chance.
