along with the band, the krrrrr, artist anya muangkote has performed the art installation ‘third eye’ at the 2014 hotel art fair curated by superconsciousart gallery.  the concept of the piece was spurred from muangkote’s analysis that human beings have a tendency to judge their surroundings based on appearance. thus, the artist believes that we cannot solely rely on our eyesight to understand the deeper meanings of art and music. set within the confines of a single hotel room, the group has dressed in all white outfits while rhythmically beating their drums as lights scattered on the ground flicker haphazardly.

‘in this exhibition, we want you to understand the core of our identities. however we cannot make you understand it if you depend only on your eyes to see and judge our work. therefore, we urge you to listen to your heart and use your emotions to appreciate our work in the same manner that we used to create them, by using our inner feelings as our guide. we decided to remove our sense of sight in working on this piece, effectively, we were working blind,’ says muangkote. the proceeds of the project will go towards municipalities related to furthering the careers of the blind.
