Unmitigated excitement gushed from Gavin when he discovered that renowned Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul's exhibition Primitive was showing at the Jim Thompson House in Bangkok. Being a big fan of Weerasethakul's 2010 work Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, Gavin was quite pleased when we inadvertently stumbled upon his latest mixed-media installation.
The video projects exhibited were commissioned in 2009 in the war-torn province of Isan and inspired the filmmaker to make Uncle Boonmee.
Primitive is showing until February 28th, 2012 @ The Jim Thompson Art Center in Bangkok. To learn more, visit THIS website.
