About The Artist

Chai Siris 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 photograph, deals with reconstruction of personal and social history. They are inspired from his observation of a village lifestyle.

Chai Siris’s works were shown by renowned events including Venice International Film Festival and Documenta 13.

His current project, The Man Who Waits 500,000 Years for this Song, is a portrait of an archeology site at northern Thailand. It will be presented at the Dhaka Biennale 2016.
