Christopher Wise: The Way of Quality Living
Photography Installation
9 July - 14 August 2016
Opening Reception
Saturday 9 July, 7pm at WTF Gallery & Café 

WTF Gallery is pleased to present the photography installation ‘The Way of Quality Living’ by Christopher Wise from 9 July - 14 August 2016. 
‘The Way of Quality Living’ is Christopher’s reflection on his years of living in Bangkok. Observing the city’s architectural fabric fast-forwarding into an air-conditioned globalized Dubai-Singapore aesthetic created primarily for a handful of its citizens, Christopher became drawn to the often overlooked, decaying architecture from the 70s. To the eye of the artist, these buildings represent a lost promise of a time when Thais did things for themselves, before their wholesale embrace of commercial Nowhereland. 

Now these buildings are seen as tawdry and unkempt, but he finds a dignity in this shabbiness, which embodies trial and effort and thwarted dreams.

For Christopher the documentation is also a way to reflect on Thailand’s current social, economic and political issues...
