Lives and Works: Bangkok
Prapat Jiwarangsan (b.1979, Bangkok) is a multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker who received his M.A. in Fine Arts from London’s Royal College of Art in 2011. In a unique, interdisciplinary practice, he usually returns to themes such as memory, political history, and nationalism, especially in Thai society. His installations have appeared in Bangkok, London, and Hong Kong, while his videos have screened at international film events such as Canada’s Image Festival and France’s Centre National de la Danse.
From 2010 to 2011, Jiwarangsan’s work appeared at London’s Siobhan Davies Studios and Hockney Gallery. The following year, he held a solo show I Will Never Smile Again at Bangkok’s WTF Gallery, as well as participated in Politics of Me, a group exhibition at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. In 2013, his work appeared at two international exhibitions: first as part of Subjective Truth at Hong Kong’s 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, and later as part of Concept Context Contestation: Art and the Collective in Southeast Asia at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.
Aside from being an artist, Prapat has also participated in numerous educational workshops and led sessions at Department21art collective at RCA and the Cross Stitch educational workshop at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. He recently received a grant from the Asian Cultural Council (ACC) for his research titled Yogyakarta Art Community: Integrating Traditional and Contemporary Art. Between 2013 and 2015, Prapat taught at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiang Mai University. Currently, he is an independent artist.
