If there is no ‘present moment’, ‘the past and future’ will not be clarified.

The Timeless Present Moment (Selected Works) 

by Kamin Lertchaiprasert

: 4 March – 5 May 2017

: Opening Reception : 4 March 2017 at 6 pm.

In order to understand “what the state of before birth and after death is like?” or “what is past and future?”, Kamin Lertchaiprasert has considered “present moment” which is the truth connecting state of before and after together.

The goal of his creation of art is finding the meaning and value of living through artworks and culture, including drawing, sculpting, meditating, reading, considering, recording, molding tea cup, riding bicycle, interacting with others, and observing own mind and thought until he found that everything happens in “present moment” sincepresent is the future for the past and is the past for future. Present exists, prevails and perishes so fast that we could feel the existence and cessation at the same time as the state of “timeless”. 

This set of artwork makes Kamin understands the value and purpose of life and Buddhism, which is to stay in the present moment and to conduct every action with a mind full of compassion. It is a goal without a goal, timeless, without border lines between the giver (Subjective) and the receiver (Objective). Whether we are helping others on land or in the water, which might look different physically, there is no difference at all spiritually. Because compassion is both the cause and the effect, the goal and the method in itself. And it is compassion that is the timeless present moment.

“The Timeless Present Moment”, the backward exhibition by Kamin Lertprasertchai was held firstly at MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai and will be held on 4th March – 5th May 2017 at Numthong Gallery, Bangkok. Kamin has presented the paintings, that have never been exhibited before, and has selected the realistic sculptures (No Past, No Present, No Future), the wax sculpture of Ting Chu (Living kindness), which consists the sensitive story of life just like it can breathe, with the name “The Timeless Present Moment (Selected works)”.
