Kaona Pongpipat reviews Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness at MAI IAM in Chiang Mai, Thailand for The Bangkok Post.
Walking inside the exhibition, however, the non-linear set-up of the works feels more like a trip from one of Apichatpong’s obsessions as a storyteller to another—the traumatic political history, the possibility of reincarnation, the presence of spirits, the persistence of folk tales, the nature of sexuality, etc. From one dimly-lit gallery to another, these short video works are installed close to one another, their lights and sounds intermingled, and there’s good ground why “madness” is the keyword in the show.
