CELLULOID DREAMSTATE: COMPOSING MEMORIES THROUGH DECAY
Pathompon Mont Tesprateep in dialogue with Silke Schmickl
Working with the increasing arcane medium of celluloid film, Pathompon Mont Tesprateep has carved out a unique position between film, installation and sound art practices. His short films harness the aesthetics of silent cinema with an unconventional use of sound and silence.
Having showcased his work at the Rotterdam International Film Festival this year with the recommendation of Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Mont joins Silke Schmickl, co-founder of Lowave, an experimental film and video art publishing house, now engaged in curatorial work that parallels Mont’s transversal approach towards different mediums and its shifting contexts. Mont will share his artistic approach as they ponder upon the oneiric quality of silent cinema, its uncanny aura in the present, the investment of personal memories through this mediums and to what ends it serves.
