22 May 2014

“But the most sobering work of all was made by Thailand’s Jakkai Siributr: a small, scaffolding-and-black-cloth version of the Holy Ka’ba in Mecca, with 78 numbered white tunics draped on tiered bed platforms, each just large enough to hold—theoretically—an adult body curled in the fetal position.”

Art In America’s Richard Vine covers the 2014 edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, including a review of 78, a new installation by Jakkai Siributr and commissioned by Yavuz Gallery.
