Ghost:2561, Ghost Stories
16 October 2018
Curated by Korakrit Arunanonchai, Ghost:2561 is a series of video and performance art series that takes the idea of the “ghost” and expands upon its connotations by looking at the contemporary condition shared by people across the globe. Although each culture has its own concept, common is the notion that “ghosts” give form and presence to invisible systems.
The first edition of this triennial event will take place from October 11th – 28th at some of Bangkok’s top cultural venues such as 100 Tonson, Artist+Run, Bangkok CityCity, Cartel Artspace, Doxza Art Lab, Imagimax, The Jim Thompson House, Nova Project Space, Siam Motors, Subhashok The Arts Centre and Gallery Ver.
Confirmed projects include video works by Ian Cheng, Stephanie Comilang, Josh Kline, Metahaven, Jon Rafman, Raqs Media Collective, Rachel Rose, Chulayarnnon Siriphol, Hito Steyerl, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and Samson Young, as well as performances by boychild, Thanapol Virulhakul and Total Freedom.
On October 11, a nocturnal galleries’ hopping will invite the visitor to discover all the projects and exhibitions in one evening through the different venues.
