Invisibility displays Apichatpong’s continued interest in the issue of perception and memory. The installation takes a thread from his recent pieces,
Cemetery of Splendour (2015) and Fever Room (2015-2016), both of which feature the same actors. Here he takes them deeper into an imaginary world and ponders the future of shared consciousness. The videos depict a landscape where the protagonists are confined to a room, along with the viewers. With no way out they infiltrate each other’s dreams.




Invisibility mirrors the troubled state of Thailand’s politics. It proposes a decayed vision of the future where one needs to constantly evades reality. The viewing experience shifts between seeing and not-seeing, fact and fiction, space and void.
