The Mystery Shack 999
Exhibition Dates: 25 August - 16 September 2018
Exhibiting Artists: Napat Vatanakuljaras, Jirapat Vatanakuljaras, Anon Chaisansook, Nucci Lertwongweerachai & Poom Nuthong
Curator: Nawin Nuthong
The Mystery Shack 999 will serve as a portal to other dimensions, blurring the boundaries between virtual and physical. The area in which reality and non-reality intersect. Drawing upon speculative past, present and future worlds, in the context of impending post-human, cyborg reality that our species is heading.
This is space experiment. A curious fantasy. Like a haunted mansion, you dared your friends to enter as a kid or an uncle’s house filled with amulets and buffalo skulls or a museum displaying strange curiosities.
Within the Shack, there will be interactive components and games. Activities will include puzzles, a meditation circle, giving offerings, and a tarot trading card game. Referencing The Mystery Shack in the animated series Gravity Falls, The Mystery Shack 999 is an extension of the cartoon universe.
The Mystery Shack 999 will be exploring 3 overlapping components:
Spiritual - Exploring the realms science does not comprehend, including the supernatural and paranormal.
Matrix - The Mystery Shack 999 will be redefined and reinterpreted by each artist, creating their own overlaying cartology of the space.
Preposition - Reconstructing reality by questioning how we interpret seeing, hearing, feeling etc.
