Harit Srikhao (b. 1995, Thailand) photographs and creates collages of dark and often grotesque situations that occur during nationalist events in his home country of Thailand.
Through his manipulated and witty images, Srikhao attempts to make people aware of the bizarre and surreal process of history laundering and indoctrination, conducted through sacred rituals and celebrations. We see for example a collage of young men, their heads turned in salute to a giant dog, a cynical comment on a fascist regime.
Marked by melancholic undertones and a restless energy, Whitewash is an expression of frustration at his own doctored, ignorant past and exasperation for the current situation that plagues his country and people under the guise of nationalism.
