Sarawut Chutiwongpeti

Sarawut Chutiwongpeti was born in Thailand and lives and works in Bangkok. Much of Chutiwongpeti’s work explores travel and artist’s residencies: arrivals, departures, visas, borders and global mobility, as well as the realities of being a neo-nomadic artist and the tension between seeking new influences, experiences and ideas and being continually away from home. The artist describes ‘disappointments’ and finding the world not ‘quite as welcoming as I once did’ leading to a search stories about the human condition and fragility as well as beauty, wishes and dreams. 

Wishes, Lies and Dreams was made during the artist’s visit to Loften Island in Norway, after a chance encounter with two teenage girls who engaged with Chutiwongpeti ‘perhaps, because I’m in kind of exotic for them and they are exotic for me as well’.
