‘Assumption’ or ‘sommadhi’ which is a word in Thai context could mean conjectures, fables, and illusions. To put it simply, it is the untrue ideas, being far opposite from the truth.
(Assumption) is a solo art exhibition by Supapong Laodheerasiri who is exhibiting art through daily essentials, for example, gift wrapping papers, signs and messages. The essence of these things has been resurrected into a new form or a new state of being by a wide variety of artistic methods such as painting and installation art. The artist also expresses them through a semiotic system, language structures, different defining forms which, for instance, describe things in written forms and convey meanings through the use of symbolism. His works of art are portrayed in deceitfully confusing expressions that are beyond absolute defining and labelling. Thus, the art exhibition allows audiences to explore, to reconsider, and to question different aspects of the truth that people have long perceived. The artist aims to ignite the burning desire of the audiences to explore and rethink on questions concerning the reality of what we see and acknowledge.
