E-book on Kamin Lertchaiprasert: PERCEPTION ITSELF IS ACTION

BY 31ST CENTURY MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY SPIRIT IN SHARJAH & SHARJAH ART FOUNDATION 

Conceived by artist Kamin Lertchaiprasert, the 31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit is an art project and conceptual museum. The museum features objects attached to stories of human empathy in order to foster a community around qualities of generosity and compassion that Lertchaiprasert considers crucial to human life. Thanks to extraordinary technological innovation, today’s world is replete with advanced knowledge and enhanced human abilities, which are often measured in terms of an intelligence quotient (IQ). Unfortunately, such material progress has also led to a loss of the affective connection between people, resulting in a low emotional quotient (EQ), which signifies the growing lack of empathy across our world today. An ideal society would be one that comprises not only material development but also inner peace and spiritual intelligence, or as Lertchaiprasert refers to it, the ‘love quotient (LQ)’, which requires an understanding of loving kindness, a virtue true to human nature.

PUBLISHED INTERVIEW WITH KAMIN LERTCHAIPRASERT ON COBO

By: Naima Morelli

The first article of Naima’s Thailand reportage is out on CoBo Social. This is an interview with the incredible Chiang-Mai based artist Kamin Lertchaiprasert.

Naima encountered Kamin around the world many times before actually meeting him. The first time in the form of a hyper-realistic statue with eyes closed in a meditative position. This was part of his work “No Past, No Present, No Future”, a resin-cast sculpture with human hair exhibited at the Palais the Tokyo in Paris.

Established in 2008, 31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit is a community art project and conceptual museum that is involved in the conversion of body and mind into a place for artistic engagement. The museum dedicates itself to subjective values of truth, virtue, beauty, knowledge and personal experience, which are all listed under what founder Kamin Lertchaiprasert calls ‘spiritual aesthetics’. The projects done by Lertchaiprasert depend on the space and time in which they take place and aim to help attendees gain awareness of the creative value they each possess.

Thai contemporary artists express spirituality in many different forms, allowing us to find depth and meaning in a society that is driven by shallow needs

Written by Naima Morelli

Art to Kamin Lertchaiprasert is a way of giving form to his questions about the meaning of life. An avid reader and a Vipassana meditator, his continuous inquiry has led him to study philosophy, religion, science, art, and culture.

For Kamin, art is a ritualistic practice that aims to achieve a greater understanding of oneself, nature, and the world as a whole. In his 1990 work, Time and Experience, the artist created a painting and print every day for a year. He painted by applying paint directly with his hands onto each canvas, wiping the excess onto his feet, which he then used to make the prints.

KAMIN LERTCHAIPRASERT

Solo Exhibition at Chan + Hori Contemporary

ArtAsiaPacific Web Review by Reena Devi:

Chiang Mai-based Kamin Lertchaiprasert is best known for his approach toward art as a spiritual quest. The first ten years of his practice, 
in particular, were based on questioning and searching for life’s meaning. The works that result from his meditative processes present a commentary on essential spiritual truths. For example, his installation Sitting (Money) (2004–06), acquired by New York’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2013, features 366 papier-mâchéd, meditating figures, pieced together from decommissioned Bank of Thailand bills. The seminal work addresses the disconnect between spiritual well-being and material wealth. While the theme of spirituality is nothing new in Thai contemporary art, with heightened global interest in the topic, particularly among the Instagram generation, Kamin’s works gain a new kind of relevance.
