‘in the red’ adapts the essence of Nuttaphol’s ancestral house in Southern China – a house which he spent two years documenting – to the present gallery space.  ‘in the red’ translates the romantic documentation to the reality.  Within the installation, Nuttaphol uses everyday materials to build the house.  They are hand crafted pallets made from cedar wood used to build fences, masking tape, light and chinese restaurant paper trays.  It is the artist’s American Shangri La.
