Tirvanija was born to Thai parents in Buenos Aires in 1963 and was raised in Argentina, Bangkok, Ethiopia, and Canada. Tiravanija’s work is both autobiographical and relational to the societies and institutions he lives in and passes through. His work defies media-based description, as his practice combines traditional object making, public and private performances, teaching, and other forms of public service and social action.
