Assembled with the help of students and artists from Pohchang Academy of Art as well as active participation from the public, the piece consisted of a 150 metre-long cloth “bridge” to an island in the middle of the lake.
According to Minette, "Ten Thousand Bridges" is inspired by a lullaby called "Maprao (coconut tree)" or "Nalikae", the traditional lullaby from the south of Thailand.
" I was really fascinated by it. it was just really beautiful. The story is super deep. I was really surprise to find that a lot of Thai people has never heard it.," said Minette.
"When I found out that this beautiful building at BIA is designed around this lullaby and they actually planted that nalikae tree on that island, I thought it would be interesting to create the project that would be connected the building to the tree in a way that makes it meaningful to the visitors here," she continued.
The installation consists of more than 450 metres of blue, orange, pink, purple, and white fabric --across the waters of the lake to the Nalikae Tree. A tremendous effort which can be found in the Buddhadasa Indapanno Archives in Suan Rodfi Park.
In addition to the “bridge,” a coconut tree and four copper-colored bead sculptures can be found on the connecting island. These features will remain in the park after the installation is removed on October 10.
