Mr. Zen. Sophirat Muangkum. djm
We got a problem here, we’re not supposed to do this, this is Phuket, come on, we are of the purest people of this planet, let’s make sure we keep this private, secret… darkest place inside.
We got nudes, all nudes and nothing butt the nudes. We can do this at Mom Tri’s, he’s a bit whimsical himself. Power to the people. The Pope’s church has nakeds on the ceiling, it’s okay.
Zen, he’s been around a long time, kinda like Michelangelo, sleeps, eats, paints, repeat. Some would say… let’s go with genius. It’s nice to compliment people and I believe it’s true.
You can see it and feel it in his work, smart and for sure fun. His work is everywhere, global. Sometimes sitting in his gallery I see people wander in and their eyes just light up and you experience their smile. Zen gives joy, grateful to have met him. Hope you meet him too. Be there to believe.
Sophirat, she’s a new friend. Zen, her and I had an island holiday for a number of days, we did absolutely nothing. Best way to get acquainted.
She’s famous, published in Vogue Italia… on and on. I can send you her bio, more experience than this paper can publish. Her tool is a camera… photographe (French word).
All she does is naked, people, that’s it. What a life. “Hi, I want to get naked for you” – she deals with that every day. The fact that she is female (excuse me) gives another perspective.
For this show she is working with Ann Watinee. All prints and Polaroids are of Ann, and Ann will be here to do a special performance related to her work, imagery.
Next… djm. I think in his perspective, he or she, or a combination thereof, prefers to be a mystery, like Batman or better yet, dare I say, OK I will… Madonna “for the very first time”. Let’s hope he/she shows up.
DJ Tommy Innocent on the kit.
