Experimental A/V Performance by with Artists in Residence “elekhlekha”

August 30, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for an immersive performance with elekhlekha –a collaborative research-based group consisting of Bangkok-born, Brooklyn-based artists, Kengchakaj and Nitcha. elekhlekha are interested in subversive storytelling using non-dominance sound and visual archives. Through historical research–decoding and unlearning biases, performing documents, multimedia, and technology they experiment, explore and define decolonized possibilities.

elekhlekha is a Thai word that means dispersedly, chaos, unorganized, all over, and non-direction. Jitr is a performative audio-visual that utilizes historical research and live coding tools to reconcile Southeast Asia’s shared heritage.

Nitcha Tothong (fame) is an interdisciplinary artist and designer using narrative and humanizing storytelling, sensory experience, and emotional expression through art and technology.

Kengchakaj is an award-winning pianist, improviser, composer, and electronic experimentalist. His musical idiom is rooted in the improvised aesthetics of Southeast Asia cultures and African-American Creative Music.
