Rackowe participates in a group exhibition titled Monologue Dialogue 4: Mysticism and Insecurity, which opens on 3 May and continues until 1 July 2017 at at The Koppel Project, Baker Street in London.
Curated by Andrew Stahl, the exhibition will be hosted in honour of King Bhumibol Adulyadej Rama IX, whose progressive and enlightened reign has contributed to a powerful connection between Thai and British artists that will continue into future artistic dialogues between the two countries.
The title of the exhibition Mysticism and Insecurity can refer to perceptions of the mystical and magical nature of human life across all cultures; insecurity however can refer to the inability of art to fully express and realise these transcendent ideas for multiple reasons, primarily though because of the world’s materiality, because of materials being resistant, dragging against intentions even for the use of language, and symbolism.
The Monologue Dialogue series has grown from a British Council initiated and funded residency and exhibition in Bangkok, Thailand. From then onwards a series of exhibitions have taken place in Bangkok and London with an evolving and expanding group of participating artists.
