Luminous Shadows: Apichatpong Weerasethakul selected

Meno Avilys

Meno avilys and Contemporary art centre present Luminous Shadows – exhibition of selected video installations and film retrospective of Apichatpong Weerasethakul. 8 feature-length films, 4 short film programmes and an exhibition in the Main Hall of CAC will be shown in Vilnius from February till April.
Weerasethakul says that, Luminous Shadows "reveals different memories of light. Some of the works are an investigation of the artist’s home-region of Isan in northeastern Thailand. Some are dreams. Some are simply looking. But all of them are personal."
About the Artist
Apichatpong Weerasethakul was born in 1970 in Bangkok and raised in the north-eastern Thai city of Khon Kaen. Weerasethakul has been making films and videos since the early 90s. Working independently of the Thai commercial film industry, he is active in producing and promoting experimental and independent filmmaking through his company Kick the Machine, which he founded in 1999. His work has been presented widely in art and film contexts internationally, including the 11th Sharjah Biennial in the UAE (2013), dOCUMENTA 13 in Kassel, Germany (2012), Liverpool Biennial (2006), Busan Biennial (2004), the Istanbul Biennial (2001), and in solo and group exhibitions at art spaces including Tate Modern, London (2016); Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; The New Museum, New York; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; and Musée d’Art Modern de la Ville de Paris among others. Weerasethakul’s film Tropical Malady (2004) won the jury prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and his film Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010) received the Palm d’Or at the same festival.
