With the last checkpoint being three years ago, MAP STAR HERE is an archive of Worakun’s ongoing practice and the distance between each material moment.Worakun Sitthipochai was born in 1997 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He is currently completing his studies at Silpakorn University, faculty of Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts. With an obsession with abstract imagery, Worakun is interested in the principles of creation which are universal and need not be bound to any specific concepts. His practice is a survey, a journey and a characterization through the process of drawing which then takes forms of objects, collages, paintings and installations..

Inhibition Series_1.2 : Pasuth Sa-ingthong / Peerada Puapoomcharoen

The INHIBITION series are the flip side of going to an exhibition. The artist’s studio, or in most cases home, is a frame rarely confronted. We often forget this first frame of the work—one that precedes the gallery or the museum.

INHIBITION is a manifestation of this first frame upon which the subsequent ones depend. A chance encounter of the work before its public distribution will then be subjected to infinite manipulations. It is the work and the artists’s original reality, a reality in which it will soon distance itself from. We then encounter a paradox: The work’s purpose is to remove itself from this reality—from its home. However, if it were to remain here, the artists would risk a self-removal through starvation. We choose to stay in this contradiction, sitting in a perpetual studio.

Knowing that relationships and collaboration require both time and shared experience, Grandma initiated a three-month project (that may be continued) titled Office Hours, the hours of curiosity. The project invites new members to join Speedy board members to collective produce zines and distribute them. Thus, Grandma transformed her space into a literal office so that it could allow for and support a long-term engagement and research.

We collaborate with Poop Press who kindly supports us with expertise and equipment for self-publishing. We hope that working in the office together could encourage exchange of interests, knowledge, understanding, and questions. Through the act of making zines collectively, we hope that those questions could be synthesized and communicated with the public. Of course, we see zines as only the starting point. We do not limit or restrict that the product of our collaboration must be limited to only zines (there could be discussions, lectures, exhibitions, videos, sounds, etc.)

The monthly zine would be under the title of Office Hours. Its content is open to form. It acts as a way to gather members, and to provide spaces for each candidate’s reflections. The zine could be seen as a starting point of collaboration that could be further developed into other projects of various forms.

In Greek legends, Null Island is said to be the origin of all destructive monsters. It had then become the coordinate (0,0) that the sea explorers used as references to directions, and in more recent history, it also became a virtual location where digital waste gather. Null Island, hence, has its own life both as an ancient legend and as a trash bin in this digital age. Regardless of its status, how people assign meanings to this island signify human’s attempt to understand the relations between oneself and the world’s terrain that is so vast it seems boundless, to anchor ourselves so as to be reminded of our own presence or its past, or to imagine new relations of ourselves and the surrounding. It is an act of map-making. Thus, this exhibition, MAPPA, is the exploration of the possibilities of map-making in the time when game developers gave us Wold edit or Mod, a tool with which we could upend the existing physics.
