Rirkrit Tiravanija

* 1961 in Buenos Aires, Argentina
He lives and works in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Berlin, Germany and New York, USA

Throughout his artistic work—especially in his famous cooking interventions—Rirkrit Tiravanija creates social situations that, in his words, attempt to “bridge the chasm between subject and object in Western thought.” He often uses his work to deconstruct the dichotomy between production and consumption, at once playful and analytical, reflecting on the history and purpose of art. As a pioneer of the Relational Aesthetics movement his works are held by several collections including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others. Tiravanija has been recognized by numerous awards, such as Gordon Matta Clark Foundation Award, Benesse by the Naoshima Contemporary Art Museum in Japan, Lucelia Artist Award from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Hugo Boss Prize from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
