Lives and works in Bangkok
Tanatchai Bandasak explores transitional states, the blurred perimeter of events, and the shifting boundaries between things. His practice involves processes of wandering, seeking, and gathering, and is often inspired by researching archaeological works and wide-ranging objects. He is interested in temporal experiences and scales, ranging from coincidences in everyday life to ecological or geological temporality to the archaic.
For his initial process of gathering objects, Tanatchai often creates oblique artistic methods, structures and narratives, hinting at tensions and transformative possibilities. This process creates multimedia artistic forms, which include photography, moving image and installation, and gestures towards the desire to expand sensory perception and embrace fluidity of meaning.
