Paradise of the Blind

Earlier this month, Chiang Mai-based artist Sutthirat “Som” Supaparinya, 42, launched Paradise of the Blind, an art exhibition made from books that have been banned around the world. Running through May 29, the project is the first installment of Silom library-slash-gallery The Reading Room’s “Sleepover” art project, which has invited six artists to take over the space with cultural projects. Som explains her motives behind the artwork, which has already attracted the attention of plainclothes police and soldiers.
