Dark Water: The Art of Jakkai Siributr

Event series runs weekly on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from Aug 22 to Oct 23, 2017.
'Dark Water' consists of three large scale embroideries (IDP Story Cloth 1-3), five photographs (Bannasarn Tribe 1-5) and  several perforative garments.   This series of work raises the issue of migrant workers from Myanmar in Thailand. Many of them escape religious and ethnic persecution in their own country hoping for a better life in Thailand but often find themselves victims of human trafficking as well as discrimination. Due to the lack of knowledge about regional history and strong nationalist sentiments in Thailand, the migrant workers have to deal with prejudice on a regular basis from their Thai counterparts. And many of them will try to adapt to its new surroundings and culture to make life easier.
