School of Ganesh

Artist : Jitti ChompeeYear : 2021, Thailand / Dance Video InstallationVenue : Jim Thompson Art Center / NOV 19-20 during museum hours
Peculiar beings are bred out of this extraordinary school.In viewing the body as a moving sculpture, Jitti experimentswith bodily absurdities and the embodiment of charactersfrom Ramakien including humans, animals, and demons.In his fascination with animalism, he fuses animal maskswith the human body to create mythical cross-bred characters.His creatures are created by exploring the unique physiologiesof different bodies. Human and mythology are interwoven into an eccentric world.
