Sitting 2004: 26-3-04. Pay Attention to the Details of Love

Kamin typically commits to a daily practice of artmaking for his various projects, adhering to this principle throughout the course of a year in order to create a single installation or exhibition. This often results in Kamin’s works consisting of multiple parts, each adhering to a specific daily ritual. Sitting 2004 was inspired by the charcoal drawings the artist made after his meditation sessions every day during 2004. The artist works in a variety of mediums, including painting, installation, printmaking, and sculpture.

Born in Lop Buri, Thailand, in 1964, Kamin lives and works in Chiang Mai. He has worked in a variety of media including painting, installation, printmaking and sculpture. After graduating from Silpakorn University in Bangkok in 1987, Kamin moved to New York where he attended The Art Student League of New York until 1992. In 1998, he and fellow artist Rirkrit Tiravanija co-founded The Land Foundation, an initiative that converted an area of rice fields into a site for creative projects and art residencies. His interest in collaborative work led him to eventually establish his own institution, The 31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit in 2008.
