About

Kusolwong’s artworks draw upon the Thai customs of ‘cheerfulness and distinguished hospitality’ to engage the audience in direct participation. Removing hierarchies between the objects by making everything the same price, Kusolwong’s installation reflects on modern consumer society with a sense of humour and irony, turning the objects for sale into ‘props’ that generate social interaction. The nominal fee makes the work accessible to all, and the interactive buying process is integral to its completion.
