Biography


Korakrit Arunanondchai (b. 1986, Bangkok, Thailand) lives and works in New York and Bangkok. Arunanondchai combines music, fashion, painting, sculpture, performance, and video in both a cinematic and biographic manner. At the core of his practice is narrative-based video that parallels his life and features his friends and family. His practice is informed by Eastern and Western cultural data that he collects, appropriates, and transforms. The artist works with metaphors and symbolic characters, while figures from Buddhism also appear regularly. Arunanondchai aims to represent the geo-historical moment of the Anthropocene, concerning himself with the earth’s evolution from a post-human and animist point of view.

Alex Gvojic is a New York–based environment designer and cinematographer. His work focuses on creating “hyper-reality” environments that blend video, lighting, and cinematic tropes to create worlds that feel both familiar and foreign. Through the transmutation of physical spaces, he explores the relationships between seeing and believing. His work has been presented at the Venice Biennale, Berlin Biennale, Palis de Tokyo, Biennale de l'Image en Mouvement, MOMA PS1, UCCA, MOMA Warsaw, etc. He collaborates with a variety of artists including Korakrit Arunanondchai, Ryan Trecartin, DIS, Xavier Cha, and Fatima Al Qadiri.

Tosh Basco was born in California and rose to prominence in the drag scene in San Francisco in 2010. Well known for her movement-based performances under the name boychild, Basco’s photography and drawing accompany the performance practice. Viewed as a whole, all of Basco’s work attempts to enfold language, representation, and becoming together in spaces where they are presumed to exist as discrete entities. She is co-founder of the collaborative entity Moved by the Motion with Wu Tsang and collaboration remains a vital aspect of her work. Basco’s work has been presented at the Venice Biennale; the Sydney Biennial; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; MOCA, Los Angeles; ICA London; among other institutions.
