This autumn EYE is organizing a major exhibition on the work of two prominent film artists: Apichatpong Weerasethakul (1970) and Cao Guimarães (1965). Their acclaimed work 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 won a Golden Palm at Cannes Film Festival in 2010. In addition, he 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 he also creates remarkable movies and photographic works.

Steeped in their local contexts, both artists draw inspiration form the landscapes, stories, history and socio-political conditions in their respective countries, while their work also explores memory, time, friendship and human dignity.

Accompanying the exhibition is an extensive programme of films, talks & events.

Admission
