She studied at Silpakorn University, Bangkok, and Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig in Germany. She experimented with intaglio printmaking and sculptural installations in the 1990s, before moving into film and video. In her film The Class (2005), she gives a tutorial to six corpses who are lined up in morgue trays. In Two Planets (2007–08), a group of locals in a Thai countryside are presented with reproductions of 19th-century European paintings. They sit with their backs to the camera and their unpretentious reflections on the artworks are subtitled in English.
