Play Pray Pop Out is Thukral & Tagra’s first solo show in Thailand and a project curated and organized by [dip] and developed in collaboration with Central Embassy, Bangkok, where the exhibition takes place.
The exhibition explores the idea of transposing Indian mythology into a Thai context by rejuvenating narratives and symbols to give an updated dimension to our traditional understanding of cultural matter and living in ethical solidarity.The exhibition is an extension to the series Play Pray/Set Point.
Since 2015 the Artists have explored the idea of “play” from a cultural, strategic and psychological perspective, with the project Play Pray. Since 2017, with the exhibition Set Point, they explore mythology, in particular Indian, with rejuvenating narrative and symbols to give a fresh dimension to the traditional understanding of cultural matter. This exhibition continues the portrayal of mythological events and mathematical assertions through the vocabulary of sports. It is a musing experience of a conscious being trapped in the perplexity of the set of circumstances keeping Ramakien/Ramayana as a central paradigm.
