2012, 7 figures made by reflective sheets on street walls, Chiang Mai City, size variable
The work is expressing prisoners who accused and prosecuted on charges of lese majeste, Article 112 in Thailand. Article 112 states that “Whoever defames, insults or threatens the King, Queen, the Heir-apparent or the Regent, shall be punished (with) imprisonment of three to fifteen years”.
We believe that Article 112 (and its use) poses a serious threat to the right of freedom of expression and as such it cripples a key mechanism necessary for any democratic society. Unfortunately, the prisoners become invisible in main media and public. Somehow compare with artist who is also become invisible role in our society.
