Earth Blood 3,
Korakrit ARUNANONDCHAI

Korakrit ARUNANONDCHAI uses denim as a ground and a stage, to build his painting and performance practices. Denim for him feels like the skin of an identity that links and forms itself around the force of globalization that is driven by the American soft power and the Western cultural hegemony. ARUNANONDCHAI sets fire on his denim paintings, the surfaces of which then become a stage for the fire to dance on. Fire acts as both the process and the subject matter in the workㅡan entanglement between form and content. Once the fire is extinguished, ARUNANONDCHAI assembles the remaining fragments of the painting, the ashes, and the photographs taken during the destruction of the painting.
The fire possesses multiple symbolic significances in ARUNANONDCHAI’s artistic process as it is transformed into ashes: “death”, “revolution”, and “possibility” due to its anarchic status. Through this collaboration, ARUNANONDCHAI invites his viewers to a pyro-spiritual journey centered around the creation and “de-creation” of the universe.
