KORAKRIT ARUNANONDCHAI, “Forest Of My Dead Cells”: The Opening Scenes
Known for his denim paintings and videos such as the trilogy “Painting with History in a Room Full of People with Funny Names,” Korakrit 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.
At the 032c WORKSHOP this Saturday night, the Société de 032c, our vodka bar, opened the exhibition. Click through to see the scenes, shot by Kyra Sophie and Lukas Gansterer, and come by the office during working hours to see the show.
In support of the communities impacted by the ongoing flood crisis in Germany, 032c will donate 100% of proceeds from our online store tomorrow, July 23, 2021, to AKTION DEUTSCHLAND HILFT. Every purchase made will benefit relief organizations providing emergency aid to those affected by the disaster.
Yesterday would have been DJ SCREW’s 50th birthday.
