Primitive (I'm Still Breathing)

Just outside Gallery 1, the music video I'm Still Breathing is an ecstatic portrait of youth set free, made in collaboration with Thai rock band Modern Dog. A central feature of the Primitive installation is a specially commissioned watchtower structure, designed by the artist and seen at FACT for the very first time. The watchtower casts an eerie military feel in the gallery to echo the presence of the Thai army in Nabua. It also acts as a support for a public address speaker system though which the main channel of sound can be heard; an intense series of explosions that add a chaotic dimension to the work, while a synchronized lighting system casts an evocative red haze around the space at programmed intervals.
