Orawan Arunrak

Arunrak’s work is largely inspired by her everyday life. Using tools like pencils, pens, paper, but also photography and the internet, she creates works that take the forms of drawing, painting and installation. Her practice is aimed at engaging in dialogue with local inhabitants in an attempt to merge the space of art and non-art. Repeatedly crossing national, cultural and spiritual borders, Arunrak’s work has examined likeness and difference within and between varied locations in both Asia and Europe, where she has lived in recent years, and based on relationships she has with these places.

Arunrak’s work has been exhibited in Bangkok City Gallery, Künstlerhaus Bethanien / Berlin, Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle / Warsaw , Frac Île-de-France, le Plateau / PariS: She participated in residencies at Sa Sa Art Projects / Cambodia , Sàn Art Laboratory / Vietnam and Künstlerhaus Bethanien. Her next exhibitions are planned at Sa Sa Art Projects in Cambodia and during the LIA residency in Leipzig in 2021 and during her two-year cultural fellowship in Berlin.
