Wishes, Lies and Dreams >> The Journey into the Invisible World


This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

Using painting, photography, sculpture and video, Chutiwongpeti creates subtle moments that gesture toward the journey of one's life. A spacecraft made of reclaimed barn wood, a somber video embedded inside an antique sewing machine, and a vintage photograph of the artist's late father play between the grounded and the ephemeral. Juxtaposing old and new materials and technologies, Chutiwongpeti blends personal and historical narratives to explore doubts and questions about what happens when life ends. Does time fade for us? Is it beyond the invisible?
