APICHATPONG WEERASETHAKUL / MATRIX 247

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Apichatpong Weerasethakul / MATRIX 247 features the Thai artist and filmmaker’s 2007 installation Morakot (Emerald), a single-channel video shot in an abandoned Bangkok hotel. Best known for his award-winning feature-length films, Weerasethakul uses the spatial qualities of the gallery to create a transformative environment, breathing life back into the abandoned hotel.

In the 1980s, the Morakot Hotel served as a haven for Cambodian refugees fleeing the Vietnamese invasion. After the Thai economy collapsed in the late 1990s the building was vacated and has stood empty ever since. Weerasethakul’s camera slowly moves through the Morakot’s ghostly corridors and rooms, capturing the natural light as it streams through the windows and illuminates the drifting dust, progressively adding more digitized particles to create a mesmerizing constellation.

In addition to the gallery installation, BAM/PFA will host related screenings of the artist’s newest feature Mekong Hotel (2012) and also Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010), winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, at the PFA Theater in March.
