Surasi Kusolwong

Year and place of birth: 1965, Ayutthaya, Thailand Location: Bangkok, Thailand

In recent years, Surasi Kusolwong has built remarkable installations in museums and galleries all over the world, among other things an actual market with stalls, a lottery kiosk and a massage parlour. These room-filling creations, usually arising out of personal memories, often express the artist’s interest in popular culture, but not only that. His main point is that we, the onlookers, should be actively involved. As he emphasises: “No public, no art”.
