PsychoGeography: Bangkok The Ant Farm

Art Exhibition Opening Saturday 20th August 2016 at 7:00pm

‘PsychoGeography : Bangkok the Ant Farm’, is an enigmatic, obscure and alluring art show based in Bangkok. The artist Hannah Theodorou is showcasing artwork at Brownstone Studios; a gallery intent on producing local abstract art. Pyscogeography is about understanding your place in space and time through orientation. The exhibition will take place in mid August and will continue for the duration of a month.
 
Hannah Theodorou’s abstract series revolves around a project involving paper fortunetellers, which where written by strangers, giving the artist instructions on how to navigate the city. After spending many hours traversing Bangkok guided (and not guided) by others, the artist uses the inspiration and interaction to recreate parts of the journey through art. The drawings, paintings and sculptural pieces of this exhibition reflect the ideas of the artists place in her surroundings and state of mind specific to her life in Bangkok.
 
Psychogeography is an architectural theory based on the Parisian anarchist group the Situationist International who opposed mass produced culture, in the 1960. They believed the city was ebbing further away from the focus of everyday life and they felt Paris was becoming a spectacle to distract people from their everyday existence. Psychogeography is about understanding your place amongst the city, which is a living and breathing creature. The artist is trying to understand and experiment with how our psyche reacts to that, how we familiarise ourselves with new surroundings, how we can be present in reality yet in our mind be very far away form it?
 
Hannah has lived in Bangkok for over a year after travelling in Asia for the last few years. She studied architecture at Greenwich University and has been drawing and painting since she was a child. This is Hannah’s second solo show the 1st being held at CHOMP The Comfort Cafe last year; she has also exhibited in group shows in Europe and Asia.
