Meet Yingyai Kampanat Kotkaew! Yingyai is one of the 5 MAHA Pavilion artists. They are working with Linda Franke for the Bangkok Biennial 2020.
"My name is Kampanat Kotkaew also known as Yingyai. I am a queer artist. I work across many art disciplines such as Painting, Photographic, Video, Embroidery, Performance art, Make-up art, and especially Drag Queen transformation. My field research is specialized in Sexual orientation, Gender Identity (Non-Binary, Genderless), and relationships between LGBTQ and social perspective.
I am also interested in new media by using an artivive application. I take on many styles such as Avant- Garde, Surrealism, Appropriation, and Interactive art. And I always try on new things to see how art can be or how can I create something new between LGBTQ in Thailand and Thai culture." - Yingyai Kampanat Kotkaew
