CALL to ARTISTS - Sexual Health Matters!
PULSE Awards 2022: Sex, Life, Chaos: Calm - The SEXhibition of the Year
PULSE Social Enterprise is a company of healthcare and arts. We own PULSE Clinic — Asia's leading lifestyle clinic for everyone, and PULSE Gallery — the art space for showcasing creativity. PULSE believes that a healthy society recognizes and supports an individual’s potential, and our aim is to provide services to make the society progress forward.
In 2021, PULSE had launched an exceptional art competition PULSE Awards 2021: Art for Life, under the theme ‘Sexual Health Matters’, which had a wonderful cooperation from many artists all over the world. This year, by the virtue of art, PULSE is again launching PULSE Awards 2022, under the theme ‘Sex, Life, Chaos: Calm’.
PULSE Awards 2022: Sex, Life, Chaos: Calm
After a long period of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world became more active; people were able to interact with each other in person, shops started reopening for everyone to come to the place, and a lot of group activities were done more freely. This means we are on the way back to the normal state where people live together with happiness and liveliness in society.
Sex is one of major things many of us missed out during the pandemic. This phenomenon represents the lack of spiritedness, lust, intimacy, mental and physical connection, and excitement, which are the instinctive desires of humans. Even though sex is not everything for life, we can’t deny that sex is desired for gaining pleasure, like spices increase the taste of food. However, if you put too many spices on your dish, it could be chaotic in both positive and negative ways depending on how you handle the situation. And after the end of chaos, calm will replace and turn itself to the highest state of mind.
As mentioned, Sex, Life and Chaos are significantly and dimensionally relatable to eachother, and the terminal of the relation is Calm. PULSE is providing the floor for artists to express their creativity and interpret the meaning of these words in their own styles. The best ones whose artworks impress us according to the criteria will win the prize and their works will be displayed in our galleries in Bangkok.
