Your past is my future is a solo exhibition by Thai contemporary artist, Natee Utarit.

Comprising seven oil paintings, the exhibition will be held as part of Richard Koh Fine Art's participation in Art Basel Hong Kong.

The works are said to be a continuation of Utarit's investigation of the relationship between Europian colonialism and Southeast Asian culture.

Previous works from this investigation saw Utarit shifting attention towards Western influences on style and art in Southeast Asia. The new works explore common aspects of different cultures.

The gallery quotes Utarit as saying, "We tend to be wary of our neighbours, because the version of the story we learned has taught us to see people from other cultures as enemies or rivals. We think that our culture was created exclusively by our ancestors. We have never had the courage to accept that our customs and traditions may have been influenced or shaped by other cultural forces.”
