Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst presents Songs for dying / Songs for living, the first institutional solo show in Switzerland by artist Korakrit Arunanondchai (b. Bangkok, Thailand, 1986).
The exhibition showcases video installations, an extensive painting and objects and the artist’s most recent videos Songs for dying (2021) and Songs for living (created in collaboration with Alex Gvojic, 2021), together for the first time.
In Songs for dying / Songs for living, the exhibition space is marked into three interconnected acts: each one speaks to a transformative potential which catalyzes the others.
The idea of self and the community, starting from the artist’s memories and mythological references and symbols, emerges in the space of the unknowable.
The visitor is introduced in a polyphonic narrative where songs shape the arc of the exhibition.
The exhibition Songs for dying / Songs for living is realized in co-production with the Kunstverein in Hamburg where will be on view from December 4, 2021.
