Taiki Sakpisit

Taiki Sakpisit

Is a visual artist and filmmaker lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand where he has been making experimental shorts and moving-image works since 2008.

His works often structure through the kinetic energy of the striking aural and visual juxtapositions that accelerate the sense of conflicts, suspended forces, and impending changes of contemporary Thailand as well as touching upon the personal memories, trauma and collective experiences.

His latest solo exhibition is Until the Morning Comes. In 2018, he has been a recipient of ACC CinemaFund and NTC CCA Singapore Residencies Program.
