The basket is a constant part of Cameron Platter’s artwork, which is on display during “The Message Is The Message” at Warin Lab Contemporary, through November 18.

This is the South African artist’s first solo exhibition in Thailand that encourages viewers to delve deeper into the multi-layered concept of waste in an installation of pencil-on-paper drawings and sculptures that present it as a metaphor for the debris of our society.

In his eyes, the trash can is the trash can of conformist common sense. It represents how people get addicted to a Netflix series to the point where they neglect to realize that the worst inhumanities are running in the background of life.

It is also compared to the aberration of evil that roams the Earth – whether it be excess, consumption, mutations, collective hysteria, plasticizers, cancer, toxic waste; as well as the maximalist throwaway culture of fast food, quick money, fake news, greed, and crumbling last generation capitalism.

Hanging on the walls of the brightly colored gallery are large-scale drawings showcasing different subjects, including the outlines of two overlapping crocodiles against a brick wall, shrimp fluctuating with martini drinks and black cats, and an image of ‘a fish.

Scattered in front of the designs that look more like elements of a fast food menu, carved wooden copies of plastic stools invite spectators to participate in the exhibition which represents an experience, rather than a simple collection of works. different.

Warin Lab Contemporary is located at OP Garden, Charoen Krung 36 and opens Tuesday through Saturday 10:30 am-7:30pm.
