The Return / Thailand / 2008 / 5′ / 4:3

The Return is an attempt by the artist to recall his lost memories concerned with his late father who passed away in 1991. The funeral photographs are overlaid with the voice of the artist performing as his dead father coming back to life. Desire is here expressed through the yearning for someone who is now unattainable.
