Animistic Apparatus Screening at Ambika P3

Friday 18 March 2022 at Ambika P3, 19:00 GMT

This screening programme features recent works by: Pathompon Mont Tesprateep, Riar Rizaldi, Juanita Onzaga, Shambhavi Kaul, Truong Minh Quý + Freddy Nadolny Poustochkine.

Animistic Apparatus is a curatorial project exploring affinities between contemporary artists’ moving image and animistic practices, based on research by May Adadol Ingawanij who co-curates its various exhibitions with Julian Ross. The project grew from May’s experience of researching ritual uses of itinerant film projection around Thailand and neighbouring territories since the Cold War period.

Animistic Apparatus featured at the 15th Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival in 2019 with a series of film screenings, performances, and Installations that were reimagined as rituals offered and addressed to nonhuman beings.

Co-partner with Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions
