Publisher's presentation:

"Tamarind Ghosts by Tiane Doan na Champassak presents an exploration of eroticism, censorship and prostitution in Thailand. In days gone by, most prostitutes in Bangkok plied their trade in the area around Sanam Luang Park; under the watchful gaze of the Royal Palace. As they stood soliciting customers beneath the dense branches of the tamarind trees, people started referring to them as Tamarind Ghosts.

All works contained in the books that make up Tamarind Ghosts have been appropriated by the artist from a range of diverse sources, including vintage prints, found books and Google Street View, before being transformed through manipulation. 

Four books gathered together in a slipcase, with an accompanying text by Brad Feuerhelm, utilising different paper stocks, printing techniques and varnishes to retain an essence of the original source material and enhance the artist's image transformation."
