The Land Foundation 1998~
the land foundation was initiated by Rirkrit Tiravanija and Kamin Lertchaiprasert in 1998 as a self-sustaining environment emerging from the artistic community. the land foundation is located in the northern part of Thailand, near the village of Sanpathong, 20 km southwest of the city of Chiang Mai. It is intended to be cultivated as an open space free of ownership, an environment conducive to discussions and experimentation in the fields of culture. the land foundation is open to the day-to-day activities of local living (i.e., the cultivation of rice) and to the neighboring community. On the social field of the Land, artistic practices are discussed and tested. A hybrid of innovation and traditionalism, the land foundation juxtaposes contemporary materials and technologies with ancient forms of practice.
