Wonderfruit 2022’s edition explores the intersections of Art, Culture & Human Rituals
Thailand’s Wonderfruit festival is back.
The festival, whose last outing we quite enjoyed last time we went , have announced the programme for their 2022 edition after a three year hiatus – you might have noticed there were a few things going on in the world since 2019.
One of the world’s biggest gatherings it showcases the “intersections between Art, Global Culture, Music & Human Rituals.” with performers across music, art & architecture and wellness in the tropical fields of Siam Country Club 2 hours from Bangkok.
This year’s festival promises “a unique setting of experiences filled with Ancient Forest, Meditative Soundscapes, Sonic Nature Immersion, a new community based art project, ancient rituals in wellness and reimagined spaces for both humans and nature with Architecture that feeds.”
Musical highlights come in the form of Erased Tapes making a return, Snapped Ankles, this bloke called Ivan Smagghe and his mate Manfredas doing something called Dresden, Ben UFO, D. Tiffany and loads more.
Art comes in the shape of Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama presenting her Flower Obsession (Sunflower), Boonserm Premthada who recently showcased his natural-world themed structures in both Versailles Summer Architectural Biennale and Venice Architectural Biennale.
Speaking about this year’s festival Wonderfruit Founder Pranitan Pete Phornprapha says:
“Since the last time we gathered, it feels like we have left behind a different world. The pandemic gave us the opportunity to pause for a long moment, think back at where we had started, and look ahead more clearly to where we want to go. While life ahead is unknown, I am recognizing that to be vulnerable through this lens is to grow and engage with it. To focus on the things that matter. And it’s in these moments that life expands.”
