Luminous Shadows is Thai filmmaker and artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s first solo exhibition in the Baltic States. This exhibition is part of a larger project ‘Luminous Shadows: Selected Installations & Film Retrospective of Apichatpong Weerasethakul’.

 

In the artist’s own words, the project ‘reveals different memories of light. Some of the works are an investigation of my home-region of Isan in northeastern Thailand. Some are dreams. Some are simply looking. But all of them are personal.’ His films and video installations form a multi-layered universe where characters and themes travel from one work to another. The exhibition in the CAC’s Great Hall presents video works and installations the artist has created over the last fifteen years.
