Parinda Mai (b. 1990, Bangkok, Thailand)
Parinda Mai’s art practice constructs the body as a sensual-sexual microcosmic lens through which the world is observed and revealed, at times marveled at, and at times examined. She privileges haptic visual expression that plunges the viewers into participation with muddy terrains of overlooked, unrecognized, misunderstood and forbidden energies. With a playful touch and an open mind, her work is an ongoing study of the juncture between nature-culture, raw instinct, the sublime and the feminine.
Mai graduated from Princeton University and is currently studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her video works have been screened in Bangkok, Chiangmai, Chicago, and the Thai Pavilion in 2018 installation at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia.
