Thinking about a work of art as the culmination of a messy process raises an important question: at what point does art happen?

simple act of displacement and juxtaposition says much more about art, cultural context, power dynamics, stories.
Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook - Two Planets/Village and Elsewhere (2008-12)
“Every life is in search of a narrative… For the storytelling impulse is, and always has been, a desire for a certain ‘unity of life’. In our own postmodern era of fragmentation and fracture…narrative provides us with one of our most viable forms of identity - individual and communal’” - Richard Kearney
“Two Planets/Village and Elsewhere is about the village (the here) and elsewhere (the there) and how stories link people across continents, cultures and even time-periods.
Rasdjarmrearnsook brought some visitors from elsewhere to her village in northern Thailand. The visitors came in the form of unfamiliar paintings and they told stories from long ago and far away: of dances in Parisian cafés, nude picnics and haymaking. These paintings by Renoir, Manet, and Van Gogh prompted the villagers to share their own stories.”

Gravity Defying Photography | Li Wei
Li Wei (born in 1970, Hubei, China) is a contemporary artist from Beijing, China. His work often depicts him in apparently gravity-defying situations. Wei started off his performance series, Mirroring, and later on took off attention with his Falls series which shows the artist with his head and chest embedded into the ground.
His work is a mixture of performance art and photographythat creates illusions of a sometimes dangerous reality. Li Wei states that these images are not computer montages, but that he uses mirrors, metal wires, scaffolding and acrobatics.
