PINGPONG, PANDA, POVERA, POPPUNK, PLANET, POLITICS AND PART / Curated by Chiara Bertola
The exhibition at HangarBicocca is dedicated to the Thai artist Surasi Kusolwong, whom realizes a spectacular site-specific installation in the Shed, the initial part of the big space of the Hangar. The installation plans five Ping-Pong tables that the visitors could use to play. On each table are placed different types of objects and materials dedicated to various aspects of Kusolwongs work: everyday use, simple, domestic and sometimes kitsch objects, such as little plaster animals covered with shell pieces, or wooden carved animals and also typical objects of different cultures collected or made by the artist himself. In the installation these items will be mingled to materials and objects referring to the culture of the Arte Povera: cut mirrors and shapes linked to Alighiero Boettis symbols and manuscripts. Thus, playing in Kusolwongs installation, the visitors go into the rhythm of the relationships participating to the complex and sometimes contradictory construction of contemporary society communication: a dialogue whose questions and answers very often create bouncing, complicating or accelerating, provoking again other questions and other answers as in the Ping-Pong game, question and answer, on one side and on the other. In the installation there are also: a cube shaped aluminum sculpture linked to a smoke machine; a volcano-sculpture made of a salt mountain with a lamp at the center; a group of a tent-sculptures made of marble, iron sheets, wood and mirror pieces; a sculpture made of all the pages of the book Living in the End Times by Slavoj Zizek, Slovenian philosopher and psychoanalyst of Marxist background who concerns about the contemporary economic and social crisis; a soft sculpture made of sponges cut into rectangular blocks with a sign saying Take your time to have a seat and think; a series of hanging lamps realized by Kusolwong, among which one is laid down with a hand painted text by the Japanese sculptor naturalized American Isami Noguchi who died in 1988. A playful artwork and of great visual impact, yet profoundly serious in order to make us open once again our eyes on the miserable state in which our planet is today and on the way of living of millions of human beings.

Surasi Kusolwong is getting his inspiration in his habitat, the Asian culture. The artists work is continuously referring to the consumer society. In his installations and performances he is questioning the current economic and socio-cultural changes.
His installations are composed of industrialized objects, mostly kitschy coloured cliché-like objects. He prefers this kind of objects above objects with a certain value, conceived for their esthetics. His installation Everything at the same price is an ironic challenge for the museum, bringing a merely commercial activity into a non-profit organization. The artist is transforming here the museum visitor into a consumer. Colourful common objects are for sale at 1 euro. The fact that everything is for sale at the same price is characterizing the central idea in Surasi Kusolwongs work. So the hierarchies are removed, art and product markets are combined and turn out to consumption behaviour in the museum. This chaos of objects and colours is having a kind of harmony. His use of colour is referring to the modernism of Klee and Mondriaan. The autonomy of colour and forms is very present in Kusolwongs work, just like in other abstract contemporary art works, having in mind Mangold, Knoebel or Umberg.
In his installations he is confronting the spectator not only conceptually, but also physically. The interaction between art and spectator is taking a central position in Kusolwongs work. The Relaxing Machine is an installation made of a 1965r Volkswagen on its roof. The visitor can take a seat in it and meanwhile see a Harry Potter movie. In this work too the dialectics between spectator and art are most important.
BALTIC presents Surasi Kusolwongs first solo exhibition in the UK. His work offers visitors the opportunity to become involved in an extraordinary experience. Kusolwong is a Thai artist who works in a unique way to create high-energy, lively and playful situations with a celebratory feel. He wants to encourage visitors to enjoy his exhibition by offering unexpected possibilities which break the boundaries between art and life.
Surasi Kusolwong, a young Thai artist who has been creating something of a stir at international exhibitions and art fairs over the last few years, splits the difference. The centerpiece of his New York debut, ''Chaos Minimal,'' started out as a gallery full of bright, cheap, mostly plastic goods (totes, bowls, baskets, slides, toys, raincoats, utensils) imported from Thailand and available for purchase. As the goods sell, the seven plexiglass-topped plywood boxes that are functioning as display pedestals come into view; they are intended to suggest the work of Donald Judd.So far the conceptually provocative contrast of street market and art market merely looks messy. Audience participation, that is, sales, seem to have been sluggish. It probably didn't help that every item was $5 at the opening, when Mr. Kusolwong's shows customarily ''sell out'' in a parody of collector frenzy, and later marked down to $2. In any event the show was at its best full, with the hot-colored objects in profusion. And covered or bare, the quasi-Judds are rudimentary appropriation art, as are the works parodying other artists in the second gallery. ROBERTA SMITH
Surasi Kusolwongs work has been showing on the biennale circuit for the past six or seven years. No Conclusion (Time is the Answer), at Rooseum, is his first solo show in Europe and serves as a retrospective of sorts. It consists of four interactive sculptural installations, each of them expanding on Kusolwongs exploration of the viewers active relationship with the art work and a radical form of cultural tourism. He achieves this through a direct appropriation and referencing of the Western art-historical archive, formats and genres mixed with Eastern myth, social rituals and popular culture in an attempt to develop his own aesthetic and to produce meaning.
Kusolwong is best known for his touring work Market (1999-ongoing), which is describ-ed in the promotional material, fairly accurately, as a retail performance with music action. The works exact title and number vary according to location and currency - in Malmo it is 10 SEK Market (2004), in Milwaukee its 1$ Market and in Taipei its NT $20 Market, and so on - but always applies the same bargain basement principle of everything for sale at a fixed knock-down price. Kusolwong sets out primary-coloured tables supporting a diverse selection of goods bought in Bangkok street markets. The products range from the useful to the useless: washing baskets, soup ladles, footballs, space invader ma-chines; there are a lot of inflatable toys, weird decorative animals, cartoon kids and plastic. The overall effect is both desirable and undesirable, in a multi-coloured, kitschy-Poppy way.
At Rooseum, Kusolwongs market place occupied one end of the exhibition space, and the live performance provided a focus for the opening night. An abstract wallpaper of shiny foil packaging, a video projection of Thai karaoke and a circular canopy of patterned sheets created a backdrop and shelter for the PA and compere module from which Kusolwong initiated the10 SEK Market performance. Dressed in jeans and a T-shirt but sporting an umbrella hat and waving a megaphone, he invited the audience to shop, while reminding them to put their money in the collection box. The elegant Swedish audience broke into a frenzy, encouraged by Kusolwongs whooping and the repetitive karaoke music. Breathless and ecstatic, the crowd looked both delighted and stupid, waving flip-flops and comparing knick-knacks. Kusolwong himself looked like both a de-monic ringmaster and a pathetic clown. The spectacle was hideous, yet it was difficult to avoid the sheepish smiles and acknowledgement of personalities all around you.
The contradictions of 10 SEK Market are obvious: the tension between repulsion and desire, the cynical mimicking and critique of the market, particularly in contrast to the warmth and playfulness of the event itself. Set against a theoretical backdrop of relational aesthetics, there was little in the performance, however, that actually confounded expectation, apart from the disarming way in which the event cut through social reserve. Yet in its galvanizing, chaotic energy the piece was a success and as an actual experience it was not un-pleasant, segueing as it did into drinks, food and a DJ set that resulted in the friendliest of openings, with the audience lolling around the exhibition hall and lounging on Kusolwongs other sculptures.
10 SEK Market is one of four works that together transformed Rooseums vast space into a theatrical film set. During the opening the installation seemed dramatic and alive, the sculptures serving as support structures for conversation and entertainment. The following day, with only a few people milling about, these interactive sculptures had a lonely, abandoned air emphasizing both the ingratiating nature of their need to be played with and their sheer uselessness and redundancy as objects. Emotional Machine (VW with Fahlström) (2000-4) a hollowed out VW Beetle strung upside down from the ceiling, into which you can climb to lie down and watch a video of a sunset, although popular with visitors, seemed illustrative and sentimental - and induced motion sickness. No Conclusion (I Want to Play the Drums All Day Long) (2004) - a platform structure carrying a mirror ball, a drum set, a lounging area, computers, Dan Flavinesque lights, a Sigmar Polke print and a photograph of Thailand - was physically impressive, but the mix of cultural and art-historical references seemed clumsy and decorative, the mistranslations provoking confusion rather than successfully communicating mistranslation.
Only Electrical Playground (Baby Richard Serra) (2003-4), a hand-painted wooden sculpture resembling (in some distant memory) a monumental Serra ironwork, managed to confound expectation and linguistic analysis through its utter weirdness and self-contained assertion of its right to exist as both a provocative sculpture and a totally pointless thing. It is disappointing that Kusolwong undermined the power of the piece by using the interior of the sculpture as a parking space for electrical toy cars emblazoned with art-historical quotations, as there is something darkly ambitious in the conflating scope of Kusolwongs simple sculptural gesture. There is an aesthetic and political charge to the reduction of Serras sculpture to a kitsch image of itself that, more than any of the exuberant performances and urging of audience participation, reveals a profoundly chaotic, uncool and genuine element in Kusolwongs (and, in turn, our) relationship to objects and authority, filtering history and fumbling to make sense of the world around us.
Surasi kusolwong interview at Hangar Bicocca

PingPong, Panda, Povera, PopPunk, Planet, Politics and PArt
this is the name of Susasi Kusolwong's show at Hangar Bicocca in october 2011.
In this interview the artist speaks about his work.
Thanx to HangarBicocca and Surasi Kusolwong.
Immersive, Interactive Performance Artist
Surasi Tun Kusolwong is a Thai artist who has won critical acclaim internationally for his whimsical style of performance art that reflects on various aspects of modern life, particularly globalization and consumerism. Most art paintings, sculptures and the like is viewed or contemplated from a distance. Not so with the art of Surasi, whose work is immersive and interactive, getting members of the audience directly involved in his art performances.
Born in Ayutthaya in 1965, Surasi received his graduate education at Silpakorn University and then studied in Germany for many years before returning to live in Bangkok. His works and installations have featured at leading galleries around the world including Londons Tate Gallery. His important international exhibitions include No Conclusion (Time is the Answer) at the Rooseum Center for Contemporary Art, Malmo, Sweden (2004); Energy Storage (When Objects Dream) at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris France (2004); If a Lion Could Talk at the Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, Austria (2005); The Long Weekend at the Turbine Hall, Tate Modern, London, England (2006); and Bangmingham (Come as you are) at the IKON Gallery, Birmingham, England (2006).
Perhaps Surasis best-known works have been his live, interactive marketplace installations, such as the One Pound Turbo Market (youll have a good time) held at Londons Tate. This installation featured a typical street market with cheap, garishly-coloured plastic products such as bags, dolls, hats, flip-flops and other made-in-Thailand items, all on sale for the price of one pound. Thai karaoke music blasted from a stereo while the artist himself worked a megaphone, inciting members of the audience to take whatever they wanted from the market, but to remember to pay a pound for each item collected.
Surasis immersive art performances appeal to the consumer instincts of the audience but in a fun and friendly way in which everyone is participating and enjoying themselves. His mock street markets have been exhibited in countries all over the world, with the price for the items on sale fixed at one dollar or one euro, depending on the location and currency. The markets encourage people to confront their own behaviour and habits in a fun and none-too-serious way, while the single low price makes the activity open to all.
Currently, Surasi is a lecturer in the Faculty of Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts of Silpakorn University, Bangkok.

One Pound Turbo Market (Youll have a good time), 2006
There already has been much discussion about art as a strategy to transform something worthless into something valuable. This statement is one of the most popular accusations leveled at modern and contemporary art. That a certain creative aspiration lies already in creating a social situation, in which goods and values are exchanged, is often overlooked. Over the past few years, Surasi Kusolwong has organized markets at various locations, where the event of buying and selling becomes a public performance. The cynical interpretation of this, that contemporary art is only ever thought about in terms of economics, is opposed by Surasi Kusolwongs performance by foregrounding the character of the market as a spectacle, in which the artist as DJ and host entertainer sells the tawdry cheap wares at a flat price. The act of exchange is more than the sum of the parts that we take home from the market, and the participation of the audience, so often demanded by contemporary art, becomes ironically ambiguous. Whether Surasi Kusolwongs markets point to the culture of globalized capitalism, which also turns museums into places for bargain hunting, or whether they rather celebrate the social event and its specific aesthetics, which we would hardly critically interrogate at our local flea markets, is a question that remains unanswered. Equally, it is not possible to ascertain whether the pretty arrangement of the objects follows the logic of shop displays or the artistic installation..
In addition to a documentation of the One Pound Turbo Market (Youll have a good time) in the Tate Modern, Surasi Kusolwong will show the performance 50% OFF BOOKS (Never Mind Kapital = Never Mind Kunst) in the exhibition. On the opening evening he will sell catalogs by artists who are important for his own work at a discount price. (JB)

Surasi Kusolwong: Naked Machine
Einladung zum Spielen: Surasi Kusolwongs Naked Machine
Ein hellblauer VW-Käfer, vor kurzem noch ein Gebrauchsgegenstand. Nun hängt er, all seiner Innereien beraubt, kopfüber mit Drahtseilen an der Decke. Schlüssel, Pedale, Schaltknopf, die Räder und das Lenkrad liegen fein säuberlich sortiert um ihn herum, präsentiert wie auf dem Flohmarkt mit anderen Objekten, die scheinbar nichts mit dem Käfer zu tun haben.
Naked Machine nennt der thailändische Künstler Surasi Kusolwong seine Installation. 2011 hat er im niederländischen Van Abbemuseum einen ganzen Raum eingerichtet, der zu einer Entdeckungsreise einlädt. Sie führt uns durch Gefühl und Geschichte. Im Zentrum der Käfer, ein Transportmittel mit wandelnder Bedeutung: Volkswagen, Symbol des Wirtschaftswunders, Exportschlager und Komödienstar in Hollywood. Kusolwong fügt der Geschichte dieses zum Kultobjekt gewordenen Nutzfahrzeugs ein neues Kapitel hinzu. Darin wird der Käfer zu einem großen Spielzeug, umgeben von allerhand weiteren Gimmicks aus der modernen Warenwelt, vieles für den Besucher zur freien Nutzung.
Standort: WWWVan Abbemuseum, Eindhoven
Surasi Kusolwongs Naked Machine ist eine Spaßmaschine, die Installation eine Spielwiese mit weichem Teppich und von Topfpflanzen umrahmt. Wer mag, kann sich zum Kind machen lassen, staunen, entdecken, probieren. Im funktionslosen Hohlraum des Käfers hat der Künstler mit ausgewählten Kissen und Tüchern eine Kuschellandschaft arrangiert. Wie in einer Wiege liegend, können wir auf einem Monitor einen alten Dokumentarfilm betrachten. Und eintauchen in das kleine rätselhafte Universum mitten im Van Abbemuseum.
Surasi Kusolwong, PS1 Moma, November 20, 2011April 2, 2012
Surasi Kusolwong (Thai, b. 1965) makes installations and performances that reference consumer society and the economy. Through his participatory and interactive works the Bangkok-based artist encourages social interaction over economic exchange. His large-scale installation Golden Ghost (The Future Belongs To Ghosts) (2011), which was first presented in the Creative Time exhibition Living as Form, invites visitors to enter into the vast field of industrial thread waste to search for gold necklaces hidden in the piles of cotton. Visitors who are fortunate enough to find a necklace are welcome to keep it. The work suggests a sense of play in which visitors can climb the mounds of thread waste, comb through the material and explore. While the literal treasure hunt in a field of excess serves as a metaphor for consumption at the global and individual level, it also inverts standard systems of exchangethe expensive gold necklaces are not sold nor bartered, but generously given away.
2011- >Sickness< Bangkok Art and Culture Center : Acclaimed Thai artist Surasi Kusolwong is challenging art lovers to get down and dirty for the chance to get their hands on a real gold necklace. Kusolwongs latest art installation, called Sickness, is one big pile of colorful wool and yearn, but it contains precious treasures in the shape of gold necklaces planted by the artist himself. Lucky visitors at the Bangkok Art and Culture Center have the chance to get down on all four and look for one of the ten gold necklaces hidden withing the sea of thread waste. There is no info on how long a person is allowed to search for the precious necklaces worth hundreds of dollars, but Im thinking its not a lot of time, considering only one of the ten necklaces has been found since the Sickness exhibition opened, on August 21. If someone manages to find one of the small treasures they are allowed to keep it.
This isnt the first time Surasi Kusolwong staged an artistic gold rush. He has filled museums and art centers with tonnes of of thread waste in 2009 and 2010, but only planted 1 gold necklace engraved with the Chinese symbol Fortune. I guess he just felt more generous this time around, and with the ever-growing price of gold, Im pretty sure theres a line outside the Bangkok Art and Culture Center right now.

2010.04.18 05.20, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA), Beijing, China. Made the obligatory visit to Beijings famed 798 Art District. As you will find in any huge collection of paintings, sculptures and installations by different artists, the works varied considerably in quality. I chose to comment on a particular installation by Thai artist, Surasi Kusolwong, Golden Ghost (A Ghost + a Host = a Chinese Ghost) because the experience of it still lingered on my mind many weeks later. As well as its inter-disciplinary approach which seamlessly merged art, product design and typography, resulting in a totally immersive experience and a sharp rebuke on societys overconsumption, represented by 13.5 tons of discarded yarn from textile mills in Guangdong Province, the meltdown of the world economy.
At the entrance to the exhibition room was a poster with the following text:
GOLDEN GHOST INSTRUCTIONS
12 Stück 90% pure gold necklaces with one of two Golden Ghost symbols designed and made by the artist are secretly hidden in this room. Amongst this thread waste landscape we invite you to search for the necklaces. What you find you can then take home.
The lucky visitors will receive a jewel box for their found treasure with the artists signature from the UCCA staff. Name, address and photo will be recorded for the artists own documentation.
Rummaging through the mess of tangled yarn looking for gold trinkets suddenly made me feel like the forager you remember in documentary photographs; scrawny, sweaty dark bodies searching for castaways that could be exchanged for some rupees in an Indian landfill wasteland, or malnutritioned kids in a mountain of refuse in Philippines. Or, to an Asian, the shocking sight of a destitute white man rummaging through the trashcan of a restaurant in Soho, London.
One could also interpret the experience metaphorically: scouring the internet for bits of useful information, or seeking clarity among the sticky cobwebs that clogs up ones mind.

Postscriptthe Experience (quoted from UCCA)
A group of young people rushed to rummage through the colorful yarn when Golden Ghost opened at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) last Friday.
It was really exhausting to dig through and turn over the thick yarn which were tightly tangled [It was] like looking for a needle in a haystack, said Ma Anning, 26, who spent an hour searching without success.
Even if we dont find a necklace, we can consider this aerobic exercise, Zhang Li, a college student, said while clawing through the tangled yarn, perspiration streaming down her face.
Surasi said he designed the exhibition as a social activity. Feelings like desire, hope, sadness, excitement and happiness that emerged during the treasure hunt completed my work. This is an approach to reveal the real world, he said.
The first winner emerged an hour and a half into the hunt. I was just lying on the mounds of yarn, taking a break and watching a friend who was furiously digging when, all of a sudden, I felt something between my fingers, said Wang Chong, a 25-year-old salesman. He said he will give the gold necklace to his mother on May 9, Mothers Day.
People can touch and participate in the artwork in a way that normally never happens in exhibitions, Jerome Sans, director of UCCA, said.
