Apichatpong Weerasethakul & Cao Guimarães
Exhibition, Eye Film Institute, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The acclaimed work of these two artists evokes a world that blends dream, sensory experience, and reality, inviting visitors to momentarily step out of their rationally structured lives. Thai artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul creates video installations, photographs, and experimental documentaries that transcend the confines of cinema. Brazilian artist Cao Guimarães is primarily known for his short films and video installations but also creates remarkable movies and photographic works. In this exhibition both artists are steeped in their local contexts, drawing in iration from the landscapes, stories, history, and socio-political conditions of their respective countries, with work that explores memory, time, friendship and human dignity.
EYE is the first major cultural institution to make the leap across the IJ. It strives to be the ‘house of film’, a modern museum full of many things to see and do, all of which are related to film. In addition to the exhibitions and film screenings, our building itself is freely accessible every day of the week.
