The Waiting You Curator Lab invited Nakrob Moonmanas and Mary Pakinee, two young Thai artists, to create new works inspired by Cheewit Kong Chan Lookkrating in Warin Lab Contemporary’s exhibition space that used to be Dr. Boonsong’s office. The exhibition is an exploration into art’s role in environmental conservationism and asks questions about what has been lost in the wake of modernity.
