Where to start on this extrapolation – do we start with the bread - the foundations – but what bread to use (hopefully not the sugar filled and doughy soft stuff), what meat to select? Or salad? .. Or is it down to the condiments. Perhaps this is the most foreign thing to exhibit here under this new found and extended nationhood. THE SANDWICH is truly at odds with its environment it has lost its position of a lunchtime staple in the East, the works in this exhibition might have resonance with past modernist fables but they do not have the honour of the Myth. The SANDWICH is left as an odd speculative entertainment for it doesn’t share the same linage with noodles to pasta.
The Talent Agency and is pleased to announce the artists for its first instalment for 2016 at CARTEL, Bangkok. The Talent Agency has selected a wide range of international artists not for the obvious links but perhaps the tensions between things. Thus sandwiching and layering might be in the work or its in the presenting of possibilities of things connecting mixing meanings between locations, works and spaces. SANDWICHES with all the possible associated meanings – will be looking at construction/layers/materials and surfaces -the ingredients are all being pushed together rightly or wrongly. The bread is the walls of the gallery that combines various the works.
