Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness
Solo Exhibition Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, Taiwan
Date: 11.30, 2019 - 03.15, 2020

Artists: Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL 阿彼察邦·韦拉斯哈古

A leading figure in contemporary film and art, Apichatpong Weerasethakul has developed a singular realist-surrealist style in which he portrays the everyday alongside supernatural elements. His work suggests a distortion between fact and folklore, the subconscious and the exposed, and various disparities of power. He reveals stories often excluded in history in and out of Thailand: marginalized beings and those silenced and censored for personal and political reasons.

Curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong, this solo exhibition presents a collection of experimental short films and video installations by Weerasethakul, alongside his photography, sketches, and archival material that explore threads of socio-political commentary and provide insight to his perspectives. Weerasethakul’s passionate positions regarding class, labor, sexuality, science and spirituality have informed his practice from early in his career to the present.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness is a traveling exhibition curated by Gridthiya Gaweewong and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York. ICI produces exhibitions, events, publications, research and training opportunities for curators and diverse audiences around the world. The exhibition and tour are made possible, in part, with the generous support from MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai, the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI’s International Forum.
