Clash of the clinical + the organic in Korakrit Arunanondchai’s with history in a room filled with people with funny names 4

, 20 April 2017
Korakrit Arunanondchai presented solo exhibition with history in a room filled with people with funny names 4 at New York’s C L E A R I N G, which opened March 11 and is running to May 7, 2017.
 
The multimedia installation is divided into three rooms; the first presents the New York/Bangkok-based artists’ new HD video in a darkened space with pillows and a costume. The second is a room overflowing with growth. Electrical wires and roots of dead trees morph into one another, mixed with bamboo, banana leaves, coconuts, carpet, resin and prayer objects for the nāga deity. Clinical and organic clash with intravenous bags, old car parts and seafood waste, among many other objects, are held together by surround sound.
 
The third room is quiet, clean and minimal, bringing an elasticated sense of time together as the objects are made by Tipyavarna Nitibhon (b.1927). The video also includes Arunanondchai’s grandmother stroking some of the lit blown glass pods that are in room two; a gesture that writer Annie Godfrey Larmon notes in the accompanying text, “she could have no context, and of which no memory will likely be created.”
