Prapat Jiwarangsan

The practice of Prapat Jiwarangsan (b. 1979, Thailand) is rooted in a deep fascination with archival materials which the artist peruses and reconfigures in order to question the relationships between nationalism and history, memory and politics in Thailand. In recent years, he has turned his focus tothe experience of migrant workers outside of their home countries. His films and installations havebeen included in international group exhibitions such as, most recently, Singapore Biennale 2019: Every Step in the Right Direction; DIASPORA: Exit, Exile, Exodus of Southeast Asia, MAIIAM ContemporaryArt Museum, Chiang Mai, Thailand (2018), and festivals including the 47th International Film FestivalRotterdam, Netherlands (2018) and the 27th Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival,Chicago, United States (2016).
