Pornpraseart Yamazaki

Mistaken Gearwheel for Lotus exhibition

In the exhibition “Mistaken Gear Wheel for Lotus,” Yamazaki examines the current social phonominal where Thais are politically mobilized to believe in certain things and are led to act in certain ways through a huge propoganda machine in order to serve the interest of small number of individuals.

Mistaken Gear Wheel of Lotus” is a Thai proverb meaning one's ignorance can mistake evil for good.

Through this exhibition, Yamazaki asks fundamental questions. What is true? What is false? What is right? What is wrong? What is real? And what is fake? He belives our society is at the edge of conscience deprivation with majority of population has little sense of right or wrong; only driven by instant material gratification.

Through this exhibition, Yamazaki invites viewers to take a moment to ponder the country's pressing issue and such harm it has caused and will continue to cause the country. The exhibition's underlying message is a reiteration of Buddhism's teaching “meditative mind brings wisdom”
