Chulayarnnon Siriphol: Vanishing Memories – Between Video Art and Cinema (In dialogue with Chun Kai Qun)
Working within the intersections of video art and cinema, Chulayarnnon Siriphol has become a prominent artist with a slate of experimental films of myriad forms whose works are often screened and presented in galleries rather than cinema halls. While still at a young age, he is often compared to his contemporaries such as Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Jakrawal Nilthamrong. Chulayarnnon will present excerpts of his earlier works, including Sleeping Beauty a hypnotic exercise in capturing a day and night in his family home that was revisited and appropriated for his short film Vanishing Horizon of the Sea, which won the Special Mention at the Singapore International Film Festival in 2014. In dialogue with artist and curator Chun Kai Qun, Chulayarnnon will talk about the experimental art of filmmaking, and reveal the personal and political core of his playfully subversive projects.

Short Film Screening: Vanishing Horizon of the Sea (Dir: Chulayarnnon Siriphol / Thailand / 2014 / 24min / No Dialogue / Rating PG)
Chulayarnnon Siriphol was born in Bangkok in 1986 where he currently lives and works. He is filmmaker and visual artist. He works in short film, experimental film, documentary and video installation which are in-between personal memory and social memory, documentary and fiction, reality and supernatural. He won many short film awards. His works have been screened in many film festivals and exhibitions in Asia and Europe.
Chun Kai Qun is interested in the study of object biographies to better our understanding of how they texture and inform human identity. He examines everyday objects as a reflection of personal tastes, attributes, moral principles and social ideals. This research drives his artistic practice and materialises mainly in the form of sculptures and installations. He is also the co-founder of the curatorial collective LATENT SPACES which reinvents idle spaces in Singapore as platforms for experimental art. Chun was conferred the Young Artist Award in 2015. He received his Master of Fine Art from the renowned Glasgow School of Art, and has participated extensively in art exhibitions, residencies and collaborations.
