Rather than considering his projects as site-specific art, Lertchaiprasert has named them Life-specific. His approach combines the contextualization of the physicality of the space and the spiritual aspects of life in general. Inspired by Krabi, Lertchaiprasert collaborated with Umpansiriratana, a renowned architect, to create a cave where conditions can be highlighted. In the cave stands a sculpture of Yai Sa, an elder lady who has been waiting for her partner who left home to find the ultimate truth. For Lertchaiprasert, she is the symbol of love and awaiting, which are human nature. The artist chose a hidden cliff where tourists and locals alike find a peaceful refuge from the business of the resort town. Not only does No Sunrise No Sunset respond to Krabi and Ao Nang but is also a response to the condition of living itself. The artist argues that the work can also be installed everywhere because “the sun doesn’t move, but the world is spinning by itself”. It urges us to take a different perspective in order to see the nature world anew in the way it is, and not from our subjective point of view. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
