Salt in Ari is currently hosting the ongoing exhibition Nobori Thaijin (through Sep 27) featuring four artists’ works which highlight modern print techniques on traditional Japanese washi paper. 

The works of Pariwat A-nantachina, Christian Hogue, Chatchanok Wongwachara and Taechit Jiro are presented on paper made by the 300-year-old Japanese Awigami Factory, supplied in Bangkok by Bloom Digital Pro Lab & Studio.

Highlights include RePlace #4 by Pariwat A-nantachina, a large-scale collage work showing scenes of daily Bangkok life, and Chatchanok Wongwachara’s The Will for Living, a dreamy collection of sketches which form Chinese-like lettering.

It all takes place in the upstairs room at the back of the restaurant, with the unframed works laid flat on wooden tables and hanging like banners so that visitors can touch the characterful paper.
