Title Being Thai: an exploration of the hybridity of Thai identity through contemporary art practice
Author(s) Sangkhae, K
Year 2016
Abstract This practice-led PhD research focuses on what I propose to be the inseparable relationship between my visual art practice and my understanding of social identity within the Thai context. In the process, this research contributes to a body of imagery unique to Thai cultural experience and adds to a representation of contributions on its understanding, within a national and global context. Specifically, for this research I examine the effect of geographical and political environments on what I identify as the plurality and hybridity of Thai identities. This research is undertaken through visual investigations into the historical framework within Thailand itself and individual experiences of identity experienced within Thailand and viewed from a distance.
