454/278-281 was a house, a home, someone lived here, a ghost of yesteryears. The decisions and dilemmas of past familial life are embedded within the physical structure. An architectural exquisite corpse, the house has been remodeled and redecorated, sections added and sections erased with no apparent logic, nor any consideration for overall aesthetic harmony. The space is now a shell of what it used to be: vacant and waiting. It was left in an unfinished state after a brief attempt to revive both the house and a marriage which began and ended there.

In this exhibition, the participating artists are invited to set up works/stage an intervention that corresponds to the space and the idea of the building itself as a creature of many creators.

Komtouch Napattaloong is a Thai filmmaker and artist, receiving a B.A. in Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas.

Exploring these perspectives has led to an attraction to experimentation and the pushing of boundaries of what cinema and visual arts can be in relation to reality and fiction.
