Mom’s Magnets is Leerasanthanah’s typological documentation of her mother’s collection of magnets from worldly destinations. The souvenir magnet is exemplary of reducing culture, place, people, heritage, and even politics to commodified kitsch. Patterns in the book reveal the homogenous representations of marketable icons. Playful juxtapositions force a relationship between two seemingly unrelated symbols. Ultimately, the book contemplates the attempt to embody and possess place and time—a subject that resonates with Leerasanthanah’s past work. Mom's Magnets debuted at Bangkok Art Book Fair 2020.
