Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness

Exhibition Website

Mar 31 2018 - Jun 10 2018

This new solo exhibition uniquely presents a selected survey of rarely seen experimental short films and video installations by Weerasethakul, alongside his photography, sketches and archival materials that explore threads of socio-political commentary. His passionate positions on class, labor, sexuality and spirituality contribute to a body of work concerned with ethics, power, science, and liberation. The Serenity of Madness is structured into distinct sections: one corresponding to the artist’s private world, peopled with friends, family and long-time collaborators; another takes up the public sphere but with a more abstract dimension of experience, utilizing light, memory and temporal, spatial, and spiritual displacement. The survey culminates with a selection of recent work addressing the social reality in his homeland.
