Through the bones, Thailand Biennale 2018, opening 2 November 2018

'Through the bones' for the Thailand Biennale 2018.

The tecnique of listening to fish, crustacea, coral and mammals in the Ocean with an oar to the head has been a known in fishing comunities from Greenland to Thailand for thousands of years. 'Through the bones' is based on this knowledge combined with technology and hydrophone recording tecniques. I have done fieldtrips in relation to this project to learn more about this tecnique and to learn how local, sustainable fishingvillages in Thailand is maintiaing a healty and viberant community though carfully caring for the environment and the people.

More information will be updated here as the project develops.

Made in colaboration with Palin, Mahn, Supan, Guy, Usen and local people and particular thanks to Bang Nee, his family and the community in Chana.

Project is supported by Office of Contemporary Art Norway.
