Rirkrit Tiravanija


Published on the occasion of the artist’s  exhibition FEAR EATS THE SOUL at Glenstone, which was on view September 2019 - March 2020.


In this latest publication, Glenstone guides reflect on Rirkrit Tiravanija's participatory installation, "FEAR EATS THE SOUL", presented at Glenstone's Gallery from 2019 to 2020. Visitors were invited to engage in the work by consuming soup (made and served on site) and watch as guides screen-printed shirts for visitors to take home.

The guides' reflections—in combination with recipes, extensive photography, and texts by Molly Nesbit, Okwui Enwezor, and Gavin Brown—commemorate the work's intimacy and the unexpected encounters it yielded with visitors.


FEAR EATS THE SOUL by Rirkrit Tiravanija (b. 1961) blurs the boundaries between art and life, a key aspect of the artist’s practice that has led him at times to abandon the art object altogether in favor of creating shared, immersive experiences. In the Gallery building, abandoned wall frames will be placed inside spaces they might previously have divided, in keeping with Tiravanija’s instinct to invert the expected function of an interior space. The presentation will offer a suite of interactive activities, including a soup kitchen serving recipes provided by the artist, a silk-screening T-shirt workshop, a facsimile of the artist’s first one-person gallery show in New York installed with ceramic sculptures, and the words FEAR EATS THE SOUL spray-painted by Tiravanija directly on a Gallery wall, in characters that will be obscured over time under layers of graffiti by local artists.

Rirkrit Tiravanija (born 1961) is a Thai contemporary artist residing in New York, Berlin and Chiang Mai, Thailand. Recent solo exhibitions include the Hirshhorn Museum (2019); the National Gallery Singapore (2018); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2016); the Kunsthalle Bielefeld (2010); the Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel (2009); the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Serpentine Gallery, London (all 2005); and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2004). Tiravanija has been on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts at Columbia University since 2000. He is the cofounder of the Land Foundation, located in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and a member of Bangkok’s alternative space and magazine VER.
