KORAKRIT ARUNANONDCHAI – “Forest of My Dead Cells”

032c Workshop / Joerg Koch are pleased to present “Forest of My Dead Cells,” an exhibition by artist Korakrit Arunanondchai. Known for his denim paintings and videos such as the trilogy “Painting with History in a Room Full of People with Funny Names,” Arunanondchai’s work addresses epic, metaphysical themes through the connective tissue of the digital age—Levi’s jeans, consumer technology, and Top 40 hip hop.

For his exhibition at the 032c Vitrine, Arunanondchai cut off his dreadlocks and mailed them to a group of friends, family, and collaborators, asking them to create an artwork with each lock of hair. What follows is a group show created out of the artist’s dead cells.

“Dear Dead Cells,

I had you for years attached to my head. You collected memories, studio chemicals, sweat, cum, paint and dandruff while being bleached over and over again, tied into knots and finally turned into 41 dreadlocks. Then you were chopped off.

Here is a group of works by people close to my practice, who I have collaborated and worked with, who taught me and in some case birthed me and share the same genes as me.

Here are some dead cells, please breath some life into it, or something….

Sincerely,
Korakrit Arunanondchai”

  • John Roberts Asks, CAN THOUGHT EXIST WITHOUT THE BODY?

    What are the best non-physical landfills for discarded thought? Do waves transition between naturally occurring substrates and audio signals? Does adrenal fatigue and replenishment in the human brain relate to cycles of euphoria and dysphoria in music? What is the mental effect of visual versus aural repetition? Is all music fictional? Can the language of objects and memories impregnate sound? Are bodies out of fashion? What is the music production equivalent to a green screen in film? What is the best non-physical preservation method for sound? Is film editing a way of ordering memories? Is repetition therapeutic? Are all films fictional? Have physical forms slipped into obsolescence? Did Erik Satie have an anxiety disorder? Is background music parasympathetic? Are physical players more virtuosic than virtual instruments? Is thought finite? Is physical music a fetish? Is reality fictional? What is the most elegant way to float between corporeal and ethereal forms? Do memories deteriorate and fade like audio signals exposed to the elements?More

  • Dev Hynes Collaborates with OAMC and Adidas on a Capsule Collection

    Under the music moniker Blood Orange, Devonté Hynes has spent the last decade softening the strident ego of mainstream pop with the wistful jazz and new wave tones, as well as musings on identity, belonging, and vulnerability, on albums such as Cupid Deluxe or Negro Swan. Singer, songwriter, producer, and director Hynes, who goes by Dev, brings his solitary sensibility to his other projects, too – whether scoring films and fashion shows, collaboration with visual artists, or, more recently, starring as the face of a capsule collaboration between adidas and OAMC, a menswear label founded by Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh in 2013.More
