project information

From the outset, Rirkrit Tiravanija has always been interested in countercultures that have nourished his work. Punk, the 1970s iconic anti-establishment movement, was a response to the era’s various artistic, economic, and social crisis. It re ects a total rejection of conventional circuits and is notable for allowing anyone and everyone to come on stage to express themselves regardless of talent. Inspired by this culture of amateurism and contention, Rirkrit Tiravanija resorts to recurrent provocation in experimental situations, leaving viewers to interact freely with his installations and, thus, shift their status from visitor to participant. “ For me, the core of my work lies in the very construction. Without interaction or activation, it doesn’t exist.”
