29 April – 24 June 2023

Nova Contemporary is pleased to present the exhibition ‘If I can make one wish…’, by Thai artist Saroot Supasuthivech. For his solo show, Saroot constructs a sequence of videos, dividing a two-channel work into four screens across the gallery space. Centered around the River Kwai, this body of work forms an imaginary memorial for the laborers who died building the Burma Railway in World War II.

Drawing from four languages and a range of cultural sites under one locale, Saroot exposes the devastating multitude of lives affected by the railway’s construction. He questions the institutional refusal to confront both history and death, meanders through the inexplicable ambiguities and commonalities of grief, and examines the lingering remains of the spirit.
