Chiang Mai Now!

Chiang Mai Now!
LHOOQ Roue De Bicyclette
Chiang Mai Now!, a survey of contemporary art from Chiang Mai now showing at BACC, opened on 7th April and will close on 19th June. The exhibition includes an installation inspired by Marcel Duchamp.

A neon sculpture, LHOOQ, references the title of Duchamp's defaced Mona Lisa portrait; the letters are a pun on the French words 'elle a chaud au cul'. One of Duchamp's early 'found objects', Roue De Bicyclette, a bicycle wheel on a stool, has been slightly modified, with the stool replaced by a fire extinguisher.
