The opening of this art series was a dinner unlike others
To celebrate the opening of Ghost:2561 artist Korakrit Arunanondchai, curator of the inaugural edition of Ghost—a triennial video and performance art series—together with Akapol Sudasna (founder of Open Field), Chomwan Weeraworawit, Boyy’s Wannasiri Kongman and Jesse Dorsey and Garage magazine co-hosted a dining experience at the original Coca Surawongse. The Standard Hotel’s Angela Dimayuga, Samuay & Sons’ Num Weerawat Triyasenawat and Coca’s Pitaya Phanphensophon joined forces in creating an otherworldly banquet resembling a superb offering to gods and ancestors. Immersed into an elusive mythical space of futuristic banana trees and neonlit chandeliers Ghost:2561’s partners and supporters, artists, collectors, curators and friends from all over the world dined and then danced the night away to tunes by Paulie Sirisant and drinks by Stoli and PB Valley Khao Yai Winery.
