The 12th Shanghai Biennale: Proregress

Arin Rungjang

b. 1975.
Arin Rungjang is a pioneer of installation art in Thailand whose practice is deeply intertwined with Southeast Asian histories, symbols and memories, and addresses ways that social, economic and political transformations affect individuals’ lives. He is known for deftly revisiting historical material, overlapping major and minor narratives across multiple times, places, and languages. His interest lies in lesser-known aspects of Thai history and their intersection with the present in the sites and contexts of his practice.
