A visual artist, filmmaker, and storyteller, Arunanondchai employs his versatile practice to tell stories embedded in cultural transplantation and hybridity. His body of work merges fiction with poetry and offers synesthetic experiences engaged in a multitude of subjects primarily based on lives of family, friends, and colleagues as much as Eastern myths. His work is part of important collections, such as: The Whitney Muse-um of American Art (New York, USA), SMAK (Ghent, Belgium), Sifang Art Museum (Nanjing, China), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris, France), Rubell Family Collection (Miami, USA) and Zabludowicz Collection, 

(London, Inglaterra).


The video-installation with history in a room filled with people with funny names 4 merges documentary footage and authorial speculation, as the artist deals with the growing contradiction between the subjectivity required to contextualize the images that make up our memories, and the rationality of the technology we create to store them up. 


What happens to our memories when they’re stored in impersonal machines? Could they take on new meanings, influenced by the technology that protects them?
