Kamol Phaosavasdi(b.1958 Bangkok; lives and works in Bangkok) renowned as one of the forerunners of Thai media and installation video art who exhibits widely in Asia, Australia, Europe and the US, Kamol has been producing works relentlessly. Viewers’ interaction and participation are often essential in his situational and site-specific work. His happenings and performances are provocative, inviting us to ponder the potential of body art that us frequently stereotyped as part of dissident art. In the late 2000, the meaning of tranquility appeared in Kamol’s work, namely Bon Voyage(2002) and Quite Storm(2005). Personal sensation and experience became the most important communication factors of the work. He has been working closely with communities both in Bangkok and small provinces recently, bringing art to the level that could function and serve social aspects on the practical level within the community. Kamol completed his MFA from Otis/Parsons Art Institute, Los Angeles, CA.(1984) under adviser Richard Jackson, Colwin Clairmont and Miles Forst. He currently lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand.
