About this Artwork

This artwork is part of the series ‘Bangkok’ by Andreas Gursky. His picture show the dark, moving waters of the Chao Phraya River in Thailand. Its shimmering surface is reminiscent of modern painting, such as the famous abstract images in the artwork of Hans Arp. On the other hand, they recall the dangerous patterns of military camouflage material. Seductively beautiful is the river at first sight, but on closer inspection, the civilization waste floating is emerging – the flotsam of a menacing reality amidst cheerful water reflection. Gursky is paying in his picture, aesthetically appealing and subtle to the environmental hazards to which Bangkok is exposed and which shortly after these photographs emerged culminated in the devastating Thai flood disaster.
