Bangkok – Soy Sauce Factory is proud to present visual artist Steve Pace’s photography exhibition entitled “The London Project: A State of Mind”, in Bangkok from 7 November – 30 November 2014 with an opening reception on Friday 7 November from 7:30pm - Late.

The exhibition comprises of photographs captured over a period of 7 months when Pace went to London after working in Thailand’s civil unrest. We get a glimpse of how traumatic events can change one’s assessment of the world and how meaning can be achieved through the process of overcoming.

In Pace’s words, “An altered perception of the physical world allowed me to capture images that create a visual translation of th...e co-existence of my past and present state of mind. The ambiguity and abstractness is the product of working in brutal conflict and severe situations. My photographs are the journey through my own internal and external worlds.”

Captivating the viewer with its deep multiplicity, this body of work incorporates conceptual images that embody extensive and enigmatic complications. The photographs capture their ordinary subjects through the perspective that everything is completely surreal, representing an exploration of the idea that the trauma itself imparts the strength to grow.

“I'm not looking to just simply document what's in front of me. I'm trying to connect emotionally as a visual artist to the events unfolding in front of me. I feel to see, see to feel. Some of situations I photograph in can be physically and mentally exhausting. But it’s here in these most intense situations where I feel strongly connected and believe that I have captured with a kind of honesty,” explains Pace. Pace studied art and photography at Ridge Street Art College and Falmouth College, University of Arts. His works have been featured in The Times, New York Times, LA Times, Irish Times, Time Magazine and The Wall Street Journal
