At Kiang Malingue Tin Wan is an unprecedented marathon screening of Apichatpong’s short films: A Bunch of Shorts Portrayed in Red. Apichatpong has made a large number of short films and videos over the years, and this exhibition is the first occasion on which 30 short films are grouped together in a single screening program. In more than 7 hours’ duration, one may revisit early creations such as the thirdworld made in 1997, and A Letter to Uncle Boonmee (Primitive project) made in 2009. By presenting major recent works along with key early pieces, the exhibition as a whole offers an insight into Apichatpong’s oeuvre, mapping the trajectory through which the artist’s singular practice evolves in more than two decades.
