Step into Supasit Thrammaprasert’s surreal “Dreamy Land”, a world defined by time, current affairs and hopelessness.This Saturday (6-10pm), the SAC presents three series that combine a range of techniques - oil on nylon nets, drawing on giclee prints and oil canvas - to illustrate a connection between the past, present and future.
