Wishes, Lies and Dreams: “Anti-Colonial Power”, 2018
Sarawut Chutiwongpeti’s installations pay tribute to the type of sentimentally unsteady dreams in which reality appears frozen, monumental, and fragile. If you touch something, it may turn into fog. Machines, vehicles, animals, trees, flags—relics of a technological civilization submerged in new ice age. His oneiric series Wishes, Lies and Dreams presents worlds imagined after long travels resulting in disorientation, colored by a transient feeling of nomadic solitude. In Wishes, Lies and Dreams: “Anti-Colonial Power,” a tiger and a hunter freeze in the moment of attack.
