Scream Pakpoom Silaphan: Empire State
Pakpoom Silaphan: Empire State

22nd Feb - 6th Apr 2013

Silaphan’s practice examines notions of globalisation, mass consumerism and the universal reach of cultural icons across the world.  Primarily using found-objects such as old metal advertising signs collected during his years living in Thailand, and showing a new body of sculptures made with vintage wooden Pepsi and Coca-Cola crates, reminiscent of Warhol’s Brillo Box installations; Silaphan re-works these objects to create a fresh interpretation of Pop Art and opens a discourse on the effects of advertising and mass consumption.
