Canyon Cinema is pleased to announce that two new films by Bangkok-based artist Tulapop Saenjaroen are now available for rent:

Notes from the Periphery (2021, 14 minutes, color, sound, digital file)

Mainly shot in the peripheral areas of the ever-expanding Laem Chabang port in Chon Buri, Thailand, Notes from the Periphery interrogates the notion of territoriality, globalized networks, and ownership through fragmented relations of the affected sites and communities nearby, shipping containers that become a policing tool, and the life cycle of a barnacle.

Commissioned by Abandon Normal Devices (AND), UK

Squish! (2021, 18 minutes, color, sound, digital file)

Squish! is a meditation on the self through lurid and liquid forms; filtered through both old and foreseeable technology informed by Thai animation history and contemporary culture, and a constant process of constructing and deforming new selves to simulate “movements.” By extrapolating and redefining the terms of “movement,” be it through psychological, physical, or political understandings, the work interweaves the medium of animation with a state of depression.
