Artist Rirkrit Tiravanija’s Kickstarter to build a studio residency to the land foundation in the northern part of Thailand is now open. The Land Foundation founded by Tiravanija and fellow Thai artist Kamin Lertchaiprasert is a self-sustaining environment emerging from the artistic community that is freely accessible to all. The studio residency will be the first permanent structure of the foundation that consists of a garden and rice field cultivated by locals and will establish a space for artist residencies, workshops and seminars. The first prototype of the studio designed by Frankfurt-based architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Müller will be shown at Art Basel. The installation titled “Do We Dream Under The Same Sky” will include an experimental public workshop to reflect the communal idea of the residency. Support the Kickstarter here.
