Working between performance, video and installation, Korakrit Arunanondchai creates a zone in which family, superstition, spirituality, history, politics, and art intertwine. Galleries are dressed as spaces of potential and coming-together. Recently, he has constructed uncanny forest settings: the habitat of rat-like creatures that might survive the Anthropocene. His interlinked series with history in a room filled with people with funny names started in 2013. The recurring central character, a fictional Thai painter, is depicted in situations that reflect the interaction between traditional beliefs, the natural environment, and developments in the technology, politics, and culture of a changing Thailand. The sculptural installation presented in the Central Pavilion is a series of ‘post-natural’ tree-like forms, while the Arsenale hosts a three-screen installation made with Alex Gvojic (1984, USA).
