About the artwork

Asoke BTS Station, also known as Asok, is a business district in the heart of Bangkok. It consists of a shared space of service apartments, hotels, office buildings and boutiques in close proximity to each other - and is even home to go-go bars and nightclubs. Hong Sek Chern depicts the connectivity that the area promises with walkways and train tracks, in a dynamic composition that challenges the viewer to pursue different perspectives at the same time.
