Rirkrit Tiravanija

Rirkrit Tiravanija, born in Buenos Aires to Thai parents, currently lives and works in Thailand, New York and Berlin. He gained a reputation in the early 1990s with his interactive performances, which involved placing everyday activities in an artistic context. In one performance he appeared as a cook and prepared a meal for his audience. He also installed a recording studio in a museum and transformed his own apartment into a gallery. Tiravanija consciously creates situations in which the visitor is invited to participate, not only to influence his working method but also to impart new meaning to his work. By introducing social aspects of daily life into galleries and museums, he lays siege to modern museum culture. Rirkrit Tiravanija participated in the 2004 Access for All project.
