Pratchaya Phintong (b. 1974, Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand) is an artist who lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand. His work translates elements of the real world into a form or a gesture, playing on equivalences and flux, an organised ensemble of tensions between two positions, a prolongation of the complex system beyond the habitual boundaries of art. Phintong’s solo exhibitions include Give More Than You Take, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Brétigny, France (2010); Sleeping Sickness, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Rennes, France (2012); A Proposal to Set CH4 5.75H20 on Fire, Kiosk, Ghent, Belgium (2013); A Piece That Nobody Needs, Lothringer13_halle, Munich, Germany (2013); Broken Hill, Chisenhale Gallery, London, UK (2013); Who Will Guard the Guards Themselves?, gb agency, Paris, France (2015); Pratchaya Phinthong / Extended Release, Art Center University, Wang Thapra, Bangkok, Thailand (2021).
