Product description

"Primitive" is the publication accompanying Apichatpong Weerasethakul first New York exhibition, devoted to the work of the Thai filmmaker (born 1970). The complex spatial and temporal relationships that his narrative films suggest are explored most boldly in the "Primitive" project (2009), which received its American debut at the New Museum. "Primitive" is Weerasethakul's most ambitious project to date: a multi-platform work consisting of an installation of seven videos and one related short film that capture the social and historical reality of the rural village of Nabua, which was devastated by decades of violence between the Thai military and Communist-sympathizing farmers. This catalogue reproduces stills from the "Primitive" project alongside an interview with Weerasethakul and critical essays.
