Karl's Perfect Day is a portrait of artist and poet Karl Holmqvist through the idea of what a perfect day is to him. It is a journey from the time Karl wakes up to the time he returns to bed. The journey is constructed in Karl's mind, as if his own work and artistic interests.
Rirkrit Tiravanija’s long and varied career in many ways eludes classification. As the artist himself asserts, “relational,” is an apt descriptor for much of his work, as his artistic production focuses on re- al-time experience and exchange, breaking down the barriers between the object and the spectator.
