Tada Hengsapkul

Bangkok / Nova Contemporary

An internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, Tada Hengsapkul’s (b. 1987, Thailand) photographic and moving image works are concerned with questions of freedom and social agency. He aims to expose aspects of Thai history and repression through impactful and challenging imagery. Tada’s fascination with the human body, he often depicts nudes, in an expression of a desire for intimacy and of rejection of Thailand’s unusually conservative attitudes. Tada has explored his interest in the human body—predominantly through the medium of photography, although his forays into video and installation have become increasingly frequent in recent years and reveal the chiefly conceptual nature of his practice.

Tada Hengsapkul will be presenting his works at Nova Contemporary.
