Fake Thaï baht bill shown on request
Unique piece
The artist used the production money he had for an exhibition to buy a couple of counterfeit 1,000 Thaï baht notes from farmers, cheated by politicians when they were hired for several recent demonstrations in Bangkok and paid by fake bills. In the exhibition room, there is a caption note explaining that one could view the work from the gallery or museum attendant. The note is in his/her wallet and exhibited to spectator upon request.
