Korakrit's Life/Cycle, held throughout the exhibition "Korakrit Arunanondchai: 2558," puts the artist's work in conversation with films that have inspired him, allowing audiences to explore connections through which much of his work is derived.

About the Film

Produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, 2001: A Space Odyssey is widely accepted as a milestone for cinematic history and the genre of science fiction. Noted for its scientifically accurate depiction of space flight as well as its innovative use of sound in place of dialogue, the film continues to influence later generations of directors and artists including Korakrit Arunanondchai, whose Beuys-like mythology contemplates similar themes of human evolution, mortality, memory, and cyclicality.
