the v&a's cavernous new exhibition road extension. i love these lines and colours, the space almost looks like an abstract painting!

the experience of mark justiniani's works is one of being plunged headlong into a seemingly infinite space. his solo show at @mizumagallery opens today with a series of mirrored dioramas that reference imagery from the world of mining, creating vistas that are surreal and tinged with danger.

metal barricades are a common sight in singapore - i would say, even a part of life here. they screen off spaces that are out of bounds or dangerous, and regulate movement and behaviour. they are integral to an ordered, and orderly society. so a certain perverse pleasure can be found in blithely skipping over these deconstructed barricades in artist jason wee's solo show "labyrinths" at @yavuzgallery -- gallerina @midorifire shared that some overseas visitors didn't 'get' the visual language of this installation but us singaporeans understood immediately, and instinctively.

the art whisperer. 😜 @aeyphanachet told me to put my ear to the long vertical hollows of this wooden sculpture by @utai_nopsiri to listen to the wind murmuring within. utai's sculptures are all made and finished by hand - no machines, no screws. just amazing!

founded in 2004 by @beejoir and @jralla, @souledoutstudios started off as a print house with a focus on street / urban art, producing editions of work by its founders and their friends. today SOS has expanded into a close-knit collective, and continues to work with artists to produce editions and help out with exhibitions and art projects. p.s. if you're in bangkok, SOS will be having a big show next year, 10 years to the day of their first group show in london. 💥

in the studio of @sinit_jia who creates the most amazing dioramas of thai life, from discarded spare parts and objects which he painstakingly takes apart and reassembles into new compositions by hand. some of his dioramas are animated, with lights and music coming on at timed intervals, and the one i saw even had a miniature turntable spinning! i love how he captures the life of the everyman in thailand with astonishing detail, ingenuity, and warmth.

araya rasdjarmrearnsook's works deal with very heavy themes such as death, mortality and gender, but they are always suffused with warmth and an incredible humanity. at her solo show at @100tonsongallery, i was drawn to this installation at the back of the gallery, depicting an all-white sculpture of araya curled up inside a silvery shell which at once reminded me of art-historical representations of 'the birth of venus'. it could also be a cloud, a cave, an ovary... at her feet is a brown dog, none other than namtaan, one of araya's very first dogs who sadly passed away when she was performing at documenta this year. she didn't get a chance to say goodbye in person, so this work is an elegy and farewell for namtaan. as a dog lover myself, i immediately understood, and could not help but be moved by the tenderness of these two forms, curled up next to each other in loving companionship.

#ratchaburi is also known as 'jar town' because it's famous for producing ceramic jars, often used to store water in bathrooms and in homes. here's artist @gong_klomklieng standing next to a huge one he made, at @wasinburee's ceramics factory.

do we find places, or do places find us? i was looking for a vintage store and unfortunately google maps got it wrong. a nice barista at the cafe where the store was supposed to be seemed to know where it was, and she flagged down a motorbike taxi for me and gave the driver instructions. after driving around for a bit, the guy sheepishly admitted he didn't quite know where the place was so he dropped me off and i walked into the first building i could see. voila! this vintage wonderland. not what i was looking for, but dare i say even better?
