Another artist interviewed

Chiang, Chusak Srikwan, another artist interviewed as part of the Nang Yai Project Documentary.

An award winning visual artist, whose installation works inspired by Nang Talung shadow puppetry. From Songkhla Province in the southern part of Thailand, Chiang has a professional background in this local traditional art form, as maker and puppeteer.

His body of visual artwork “pushes the boundaries and possibilities of Nang Talung further by freeing these two-dimensional puppets from their theatrical contexts, commenting on recent events and the dynamics of politics and society.”
 – Tang Contemporary Art

He exhibits internationally and was also part of the Thailand Biennale 2018.
