CHALIDA ASAWAKANJANAKIT

“Journal journey” Group exhibition 2017

“Forty-Eight” is a series of photos that capture everyday life of the artist during her journey to search for new adventure in New York, U.S.A. During the span of 48 days, she witnessed the diversity of the atmosphere and people’s way of life in the city. The photos are documented in a New York minute, as how fast-paced the life in the city can actually be. The artist carried with her crayon and acrylic paints to implement detail in her work. Another section of “Forty-Eight” is the review on famous museums in New York City. Chailida questions how the artistic context in the city is perceived, what is considered a good museum and what is the current form of artwork. She also shares her experience as a museum visitor and the recent art movement as well.
