MAM Project 025: Apichatpong Weerasethakul + Hisakado Tsuyoshi

2018.4.25 [Wed] - 9.17 [Mon]

Presenting Synchronicity, a brand-new video-installation collaboration between globally renowned film director Apichatpong Weerasethakul (b. 1970 in Bangkok), and artist Hisakado Tsuyoshi (b. 1981 in Kyoto) whose career has progressed in leaps and bounds in recent years.

Connected with the new film Memoria (due for release 2019) being made by Apichatpong in Colombia, Synchronicity takes as its theme the contrast between personal memory and the collective memory of society and state, drawing on the disciplines of depth psychology and neurological science. Staying at Apichatpong’s studio in Chang Mai, Hisakado has worked with the director, sharing ideas for the screenplay from the conceptual phase. The experimental installation emerging from this process of dialogue and mutual influence is an exciting work sure to fire the imagination.
