An exhibition by Anup Mathew Thomas, the second winner of Han Nefkens Foundation.

In Scene from a Wake, Anup Mathew Thomas presents a set of works that look at disparate incidents spread out over a century. Protagonists include a social reformer, a planter, a dentist, a restaurateur, a bishop, and an artist. Thomas continues to build up his collection of stories from one place, persistently archiving alternative moments from different histories, some of which then come together based on commonalities that may be odd but are significant. In Scene from a Wake, Thomas puts forward the breakdown of plans, inescapable outcomes and the future as a space ripe for speculation.

About the Han Nefkens Foundation - BACC Award for Contemporary Art
The Han Nefkens Foundation - BACC Award for Contemporary Art is a collaboration between the Han Nefkens Foundation and the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC). The award is aimed at up-and-coming artists under 40 living in Asia. The long list of candidates is put together by ten scouts from different areas in Asia who each select three artists. A jury then chooses the winning artist.

This biannual award seeks to encourage artists in Asia who already have a solid body of work but have not yet been showcased in major institutions. The award consists of 15,000 US dollars: a $3,000 artist’s fee and $12,000 towards the production of new work as well as a residency and an exhibition at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.
