The phrase What To Dip is the phonetic pronunciation of the Thai word meaning Raw Material. The abundance of raw material within its borders is essential to determining a countrys economy. When viewed as a commodity to export for industrial purposes, often the cultural implications, environmental impact and beauty of these materials are overlooked. What To Dip UHDOL]HVWKHVLJQLFDQFHRIQDWXUDOUHVRXUFHVWRWKHPHPEHUVRIHDFKFRPPXQLW\DFURVVWKHJOREHDQGLWVvalue to humankind. Artists and their artworks have potential to be catalysts to build awareness and concerns on critical matters at both a local level and worldwide scope. What To Dip project is a platform for visual artists from all geographical and cultural backgrounds (36 artists from 12 countries) to work with unfamiliar/unconventional materials in their local setting to create works of art and share them in our exhibition in Chiang Mai, a city with a rich mix of raw material resources, art, crafts and culture (a Creative City).

About uncookedculture.com:Uncookedculture.com is a free, experimental, interactive online community created by Chutima Kerdpitak(Nok). It was designed to assist and nurture raw-minded artists from all backgrounds, from university educated to self-taught, with a goal of building a sustainable global community of artists. By providing opportunities to participate in exhibitions (both on-line and in the gallery), and make connections with other like-minded people, the hope is to encourage artists to continue to grow, develop, and experiment in their practices.

About SurfaceArts Collaboration, Translation:This collaborative project, titled Translation, explores the use of the internet as a creative tool. It has involved the creative interpretation of words every day, for one month by artists in the UK and Thailand. A randomly generated word was given as inspiration to all artists to produce a piece of work. Surface Arts aims to explore new trends of art within a mobile global network reducing boundaries and using art to engage, display and connect. This work treats geographical displacement as a new material and explores both sides. www.arttourist.surfacearts.co.uk www.arttouristthai.surfacearts.co.uk

I believe that the possibilities of Avant-garde art (with all its variations-Suprematism, Constructivism, Cubism ,Cubo-Futurism...), born and developed in the beginning of 20th century in Western and Eastern Europe are far from exhausted. I have created my own Avant-garde styles - Organic-Cubism, Cubo-Pointillism, Pan-Suprematism, C-Spectralism, X-Cubism. As an artist, I like the challenge, to do some-thing different from what I am acustomed to. This exhibition attracted me for the same reasons.

the power of theatricality, the role of the torturer and his ultimate relation with his victim, crowd spectator and her ambiguous relation with the execution are as many topics treated pictorially in the internal organs and the grammar of the artist.
