Korakrit Arunanondchai @ Carlos/Ishikawa, Sep 16 – Oct 28

, 15 September 2014

Carlos/Ishikawa contemporary art space is hosting the latest exhibition from Korakrit Arunanondchai, titled 2557 (Painting with history in a room filled with men with funny names 2) and running at the London space from September 16 to October 28. 

The exhibition, done in collaboration with Korakrit’s twin brother, Korapat Arunanondchai, comes as the first solo UK exhibition for the Bangkok-born artist, following in the footsteps of his solo debut, Painting with History in a Room Filled with Men with Funny Names, at Bushwick’s    C L E A R I N G Gallery in 2013.

Spanning diverse disciplines and using unusual materials has always been part of Arunanondchai’s method, whether with the photographs and denim paintings made with bleach and fire he created for his Bushwick exhibition, or the paintings and video installations he made in collaboration with Korapat for his upcoming UK show.

Creating video trailers for each of his shows has also become a bit of a trademark, and you can enjoy the trailer for the upcoming 2557 exhibition below.
