Like Waiting to Eat Delicious Fruit in Summer,
exploring ambiguous aspects between power dynamics, especially an invisible gap between the lover and the beloved, questioning what Love means and who gets the right to define the absolute meaning of Love.
As Love confuses, love holds and love hurts.
Is it all about love? No it isn't.

Where I came from, Love is being used as a political weapon.
To silent, to sensor and even to kill because we have been instilled a profound feeling; a peculiar combination between love and fear that I wouldn't dare to write-here,
so much so something has to remain untouchable.

Maybe there is something invisible I can not eat(reach) yet.

Traces of the Cold war still remain there In the brain of people who lived in those particular times, passing through another generation. I may not be a direct offspring of the Cold war but I have learned how to be loved and to love others from Those people.

I can't deny it so I own it.

Leo Porramet Jittaksa (b.1995, THA) is an interdisciplinary artist who works with installation, text and performance. Leo's body of work is the combination of many stories related to systematic oppressions: Patriarchy, queer diaspora, architecture of emotions and the desire to wield powers.
