Spirit House Open House is a collaboration between People of Ari and the Thai online political art sensation 'Uninspired by Current Events,' a 3D graphic artist who cleverly satirizes Thailand's daily affairs through quirky, symbolic 3D art. This installation partially transforms the Yellow Lane building, formerly a home of one of Thailand's prime ministers and military generals, in Ari Soi 1 into a scaled-up Thai spirit house. It includes various supersized offerings and decorations, serving as a medium to explore iconic Thai objects and provide a brief introduction to the culture around guardian spirits, along with some playful commentary on how this culture reflects on Thai society today.
During the weekend, the exhibition unfolds into an interactive performance by AT Theatre. This special event takes audience members on a supernatural tour as 'junior offerings' upon first arrival to the spirit house that they must serve. It also happens to be the day of the miraculous selection of the new 'เจ้าที่' or the highest ranked guardian spirit of the house after the old one left.
This special tour, allowing them to delve into the magical lives of guardian spirits, witnessing wonders, and bestowing blessings (or curses) on residents. However, even as mystical beings, managing a household presents challenges. Participants will have the opportunity to explore how the candidates navigate these complexities.
Join us for an unforgettable weekend as we invite everyone to partake in this unique 'open house' —a celebration that transcends dimensions and offers a unique perspective on the essence of Thai culture!
