Surasi Kusolwong Künstler, Bangkok

DEAR FRIENDS,
TRUST ME, I'M OVER FORTY.

The performance and installation artist Surasi Kusolwong will give a detailed talk about some of his works and the ideas behind them. Many of his projects such as Market, Massage, Emotional Machine, Golden Ghost etc., have been often misunderstood, and many details and ideas behind them overlooked.
 
In his work the artist creates situations involving the audience, which question consumerism and the human spirit. The relationship between the material and the immaterial is essential for awareness in todays flood of images and global crisis. His works focus on the processes, economic democracy and social values within the human system.
 
Surasi Kusolwong lives and works in Bangkok. Kusolwong is an international renowned artist, who has participated in a number of important art exhibitions in Europe, America and Asia. His works are included in upcoming exhibitions at Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven in The Netherlands and Kunsthalle Münster in Germany in November 2013.
He has held solo exhibitions at such venues as MoMA PS1, New York (2011); Hangar Bicocca, Milan (2011); Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing (2010); Kunsthalle Wien (2005); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2004), and participated in important group shows such as Living As Form, Creative Time, New York (2011); The Long Weekend, Tate Modern, London (2006); Venice Biennale (2003); Berlin Biennale (2001); Kwangju Biennale (2000); Cities on the move, Wiener Secession (1997). Kusolwong initiated the “Invisible Academy” for free education without a fixed address in 1997, which he also runs, collaborating with various institutions and non-institutions in several countries.

Workshop12. - 14. November 2013

DEAR VIENNA,
TRUST / ONE TWO AND MANY / CONVERSATION / SPEAKING BRAIN BOX / GOING OUT / HIDDEN / SHORT VOYAGES / GOOD MORNING MUSEUM / MAKE THIS LAST / ALL THE BEST / WITH LOVE.

During three days, the embedded knowledge and experience in art, conceptual practice, thinking process, action and performativity will be explored in a workshop and artistic lecture by the artist within the notion of the Invisible Academy – the academy without walls – working closely with the TransArts Directorial Team.
 
The theme for the workshop is to be provoked and investigated by the participants and the artist, who will practice together for three days. This will be both on an individual basis and in the group, focusing on the idea of language and visual language, spirit or spirited away, about curiosity of the known and the unknown, with information or without.
 
The workshop is grounded in knowledge-in-progress, the rhythm of tools and methods, the experiment of senses, the body with action, mind with alternate perception, performativity in and around objects along with their environment. This could be the practical model of non-hierarchy between theory and practice, reflection and spontaneity, formal and informal.
 
The workshop aims at the experiment and experience of participants to take off.
