About the project: “Many of the characters portrayed by Nitsch were interrupted in their daily chores and they seem to be looking at themselves in a mirror. And mankind needs a mirror! The mirror, as a symbol, is a proverbial representation of consciousness, imagination and thought, whose character has temporal and existential variability…In Tango in the Big Mango the portraits are an important part of the scaffold constructed for this photo book. The approach given by Nitsch, through the interconnections established with his senses, means that we are actually our mirror, which represents us in our condition of continous expectancy, thus remaining bound to crude materiality.” – JM Ramirez-Suassi

About the project: Politics, religion, cultural heritage, hyper-consumerism . . . all now collide powerfully in the contemporary psyche. The tree thematic series ‘Greed. Growth. Angst’—each both singly and collectively pointing to troubling undercurrents.

The 15 conceptual plates are part of the ‘Tango in the Big Mango’ collection of 160 photographs (published by Hatje Cantz, ISBN 978-3-7757-4824-7) – a Baudelaire-like photo imagination about Bangkok, working at a ground zero of now-ness.

About the project: The ten outtakes provide a behind-the-scenes look into ‘Chinese Opera in Thailand.’

A faint buzzing sound can be heard in the air. It smells like burnt tires, cooked bananas, and grilled squid – a porridge of diverse sounds and smells swirls around the body in the humid tropical air as entering Soi Charoen Krung 72/2 at 5 p.m.

A tiny concrete path penetrates deep into the backyards’ roofed labyrinth. A stage rises up into the gently lowering twilight sky at the end of the rabbit’s den. The performance starts at 8:00 p.m., but the story of the people behind the characters was told before the actual performance.
