Exhibit curated by Soko Phay-Vakalis and Pierre Bayard
This exhibit features seventy works of visual arts (paintings, drawings, photographs) made by the great contemporary artists Vann Nath and Séra (both survivors of the genocide), as well as works by emerging artists who were invited to create artworks evoking the genocide during three "memory workshops" held between 2008 and 2012. This exhibit highlights the dynamism and the strength of creation of three generations of Cambodian artists. The diversity and the polysemy of their artworks testify also to the passage from I to we, from an intimate way of living and thinking to a collective consciousness.
Additional works are on display at the Italian Academy, 1161 Amsterdam.
The art exhibit is part of the city-wide Season of Cambodia Festival.
