Artist-in-Residence: Chai Siris

Chai Siris (b. 1983, Bangkok) is an artist based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He started his art practice when he worked with homeless people at Bangkok’s Royal Ground. He continues to collaborate with people from various professions such as fortune tellers, photo lab technicians, construction workers, and housewives. His work, often video and photography, deals with the reconstruction of personal and social history. They are inspired by his observations of a village lifestyle. Chai Siris’s works have been shown at renowned events including Venice International Film Festival and Documenta 13. His project, The Man Who Waits 500,000 Years for This Song, is a portrait of an archeology site in northern Thailand, and was presented at the Dhaka Biennale 2016.
