Now showing at London’s 180 The Strand.
The Store X The Vinyl Factory’s new group exhibition at 180 The Strand, TRANSFORMER: A Rebirth Of Wonder, sees Jefferson Hack curate newly commissioned and debut works by Doug Aitken, Sophia Al-Maria & Victoria Sin, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Donna Huanca, Juliana Huxtable, Evan Ifekoya, Dozie Kanu, Quentin Lacombe, Lawrence Lek, Jenn Nkiru, Chen Wei and Harley Weir & George Rouy.
In these three videos, Kokakrit Arunanondchai invites us into an uncanny spiritual realm of Thai folklore, music culture and animism. Unravelling across two screens and a soundscape that layers breathing beneath the narrator’s voice, he utilises memory, Buddhist mythology and contemporary culture and its news cycle to construct a hybridised framework for his subconscious, cave-like dimension.
TRANSFORMER: A Rebirth Of Wonder runs from October 2 to December 8 at The Store X 180 The Strand, London WC2R 1EA. The exhibition is open Tuesday through Sunday, 12pm – 7pm and entry is free. Find out more here.
