At the invitation of West, Arin Rungjang together with Kornkrit Jianpinidnan, Chitti Kasemkitvatana, Sivaroj Kongsakul, Shooshie Sulaiman and Rirkrit Tiravanija will create a new installation. The cultural difference will form the starting point for these Asian artist friends (of whom some form part of the artists collective AYU, As Yet Unnamed), and thus in addition the similarities between The Netherlands and Thailand. The framework is shaped by ideas and objects, and their distance with regard to each other.
Let’s make sense is a concept based on the idea that an event or situation can function as a platform on which the cooperation between various artists, and the attuning of objects and places become a shared experience. Rungjang managed to involve five contemporary visual artists in this project, and in doing so he aims to bring people together and create a channel to exchange ideas. The basic principles centre around 4 Thai recipes by Rirkrit Tiravanija, which will be presented in a suitable environment created by Kornkrit Jianpinidnan, Chitti Kasemkitvatana and Shooshie Sulaiman. However, this installation will not be complete without visitors; people who come to sample the food and start a dialogue with the artists and each other. The opening will be recorded by Sivaroj Kongsakul and can be viewed for more than a month in West’s three different exhibition rooms, together with the installation.
