Korakrit Arunanondchai & Alex Gvojic Bangkok / New York
As a visual artist, filmmaker, and storyteller, Korakrit Arunanondchai (b.1986, Bangkok; lives and works between New York and 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. His major institutional solo shows include MoMA PS1, New York; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Kiasma, Helsinki; Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing and S.M.A.K, Ghent, among others. His work has been included at the Venice Biennale, the Whitney Biennale, and Dhaka Art Summit. Korakrit’s work is currently on view at Kunsthall Trondheim and Fundação de Serralves. Upcoming shows include Migros Museum, Zurich and Kunstverein Hamburg.
