BY KAMIN LERTCHAIPRASERT EXHIBITION LAUNCH
SATURDAY / 28 JUL
4PM - 7PM
DISINI presents an exhibition that follows on from a series of work called Emptiness which Kamin has been working on over the last three years. The artist states that, “emptiness is not a state of mind, but is the essence of the mind.” For Kamin, art is a ritualistic practice aimed at the achievement of a greater understanding of oneself, nature and the world as a whole. This exhibition showcases paintings, sculptures, a video work and works on paper.
The exhibition also relates to Kamin’s outdoor artwork, The Ground, that is presented as part of DISINI. It consists of three papier-mâché sculptures in transparent cases stacked atop each other, which stand in a quiet and meditative corner of Malan Road in Gillman Barracks; occupying a height of close to eight meters. The man in mediation reflects Kamin himself, accompanied by a life-sized elephant and tree with bare branches. The sculptures were created purely using the artist’s personal paper waste, amassed over more than 18 years. It speaks of an interdependence between man and nature, as excessive consumption disrupts the natural order and contributes to a hollowed human existence.

FRIDAY / 3 AUG
The World's Loneliest Bookstore explores the implications of a post-apocalyptic world. If the world was reduced to its minimum viable population, would there still be a need for book? Would anyone want to visit a bookstore while facing the issue of just surviving? Would this make it the world's loneliest bookstore in existence?
