Korakrit Arunanondchai presents his exhibition «Songs for dying / Songs for living» at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst. The artist, born in Thailand in 1986 and now living in New York, is renowned for his large video installations.
Every facet of our existence
Through his art, Arunanondchai addresses a wide range of life's fundamental issues. His new videos draw together a variety of themes: taking leave of his late grandfather, Thailand's social conflicts, but also myths and shamanic rituals. The result is a set of moving stories. They tackle grief, hope and community, but also the question of what comes after life.
A journey into other worlds
The museum's evocative spaces housing paintings and sculptures invite visitors to immerse themselves in the world of the artist. Visitors set out on a journey on which historical events and personal fates play as big a role as spirits, mythical beings and other realms. «Songs for dying / Songs for living» is an exhibition that touches the visitor, but also asks questions and stimulates the imagination.
