Ubaan Art Station

For his first solo exhibition in Thailand, American artist Evan Dawson presents two interrelated projects that look at popular modes of representation in print media and legal documents. By holding magazine pages up to a light, he has compiled a body of “found collages” which fill Ubaan Art Station through a large scale installation and copies of a self-published magazine. The images are selected based on their surreal and comic insights into the subconscious of pop-culture.

In a temporary office on the second floor, visitors are invited to collaborate on the title piece, Proof of Contact. For every encounter, two corresponding documents will be drawn up that attempt to prove that the artist and visitor have, in fact, met. Whether approved or not, each participant will receive an official, signed and stamped artwork, and its counterpart will be added to the gallery wall. The artist will hold regular office hours during the exhibition with a translator available on select days.

*Please note: You are encouraged to bring passport photos, legal documents, or ID cards, whether real or fake, although none are mandatory*
