Nuttaphol Ma
This Land Is Your Land

In the third installment of Pitzer’s Emerging Artist Series, Thai-born, Los Angeles based artist Nuttaphol Ma combines references to Manzanar—an abandoned Japanese relocation camp at the base of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range—with Woody Guthrie’s missing lyrics from “This Land Is Your Land.” Ma’s site-specific installation explores issues of displacement, migration and survival and asks whether “This Land Is Your Land” is still relevant to today’s new immigrants.

This Land is Your Land is co-organized with the 18th Street Arts Center, Santa Monica.

‘in the red’ adapts the essence of Nuttaphol’s ancestral house in Southern China – a house which he spent two years documenting – to the present gallery space.  ‘in the red’ translates the romantic documentation to the reality.  Within the installation, Nuttaphol uses everyday materials to build the house.  They are hand crafted pallets made from cedar wood used to build fences, masking tape, light and chinese restaurant paper trays.  It is the artist’s American Shangri La.
