FIELD MEETING: THINKING PERFORMANCE

Korakrit Arunanondchai (New York & Bangkok)

Where Process Ends: Objects and their Performances

LEAP deputy editor Robin Peckham (Hong Kong) spearheaded a discussion with artists Nadim Abbas (Hong Kong) and Korakrit Arunanondchai (New York+Bangkok) to investigate the invisible elements that allow object-art, such as sculpture and installation, to radiate performance, and how artists encoded “live-ness” and performativity into their object-based work. The discussion also touched upon how the relationship between memory and documentation is changing in art media today.

Korakrit Arunanondchai engages a myriad of subjects such as history, authenticity, self-representation, and tourism through the lens of a cultural transplant. His work seeks to find a common ground in artistic experiences through a pastiche of styles and media. Arunanondchai earned his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2009 and his MFA from Columbia University in 2012. He has had several solo exhibitions at CLEARING Gallery in NYC and Brussels and has been featured in major group exhibitions at the Sculpture Center and the Fisher Landau Center. The artist made his museum solo debut at MoMA PS1, NYC, in 2013.
