SIAMESE SMILE CONTEST/

(2010)

  

Medium: Mixed Media
Duration: 420 minutes
Year of Production: 2010

Note: “Siamese Smile Contest” is a day marathon smiling contest whereby an award in cash is provided to the one who can smile the longest of the day. (We finally got the winner who can smile up to 172 minutes.) The contest took place in JJ Market Creative Space where diversity – varies in social classes, religions, ages, and ethnicities – of a crowd gathered. “Siamese Smile” is a gimmick which Thai government uses to promote tourism during the age of recession and volatile state of Thailand’s political turmoil.
