About the artist:
A visual artist, filmmaker, and storyteller, Arunanondchai (b.1986, Bangkok) employs his versatile practice to tell stories embedded in cultural transplantation and hybridity. His body of work merges fiction with poetry and offers synesthetic experiences engaged in a multitude of subjects primarily based on lives of family, friends, and colleagues as much as local myths. Surpassing a solitary artist, Arunanondchai is an avid collaborator who has worked on videos, performances and music together with an extensive list of people. Arunanondchai’s first video in a series of work, 2012–2555, arose from the ideas of death, rebirth and the fictionalization of time and was shown at MoMA PS1 in New York City (2014). Together with Arunanondchai’s twin brother Korapat Arunanondchai, the performance artist, boychild and artist Alex Gvojic, they produce a live performance to accompany the video installation as part of the Sunday Sessions at MoMA PS1. He works between New York and Bangkok.
