Thai-born, Los Angeles-based artist Nuttaphol Ma combines elements of Greek myth, Western operatic form, and European weaving to create a maze-like installation based on a story of migration and survival in his installation Ruins of Daedalus' Labyrinth. Through a translation of the phrase “heroic couplet” – a structural form in English poetry commonly used for epic works – the artist uses Chinese meanings to deconstruct the relationship between eastern and western narratives. Working from an autobiographical, six-act pseudo-operatic text that serves as a guide through his labyrinth, the work becomes a tapestry of myth, dream, and reality that seduces viewers into weaving in their own meaning
