Rirkrit Tiravanija (pronounced Teer-a-van-ee-ja) was born in Buenos Aires in 1961, son of a diplomat; he has lived in Thailand, Ethiopia and Canada. Since 1989, his most characteristic artistic act of generosity has been to cook food in galleries - usually traditional Thai curried vegetables - and offer this food to his "viewers" for free. This is an example of "relational aesthetics" and today Tiravanija is looked upon as the very pioneer of this movement. He is making various projects, involving people as a part of the art, all over the world.  


His project for Ladonia Biennial is the stunning 11 000 Virgins. 11 000 "virgins" are running on the shore of Ladonia.
