Film: Phnom Penh, Rescue Archaeology

April 5, 2016 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Phnom Penh, Rescue Archaeology: The Body and the Lens in the City presents a collection of video and performance works produced by ten Cambodian artists since 2010. The concept for this film was derived from the 2013 exhibition Phnom Penh, Rescue Archaeology: Contemporary Art and Urban Change in Cambodia in the ifa in Berlin and Stuttgart. In this film, contemporary Cambodian arts capture and critically engage with the rapid urbanization that has recently transformed the architecture, environment, and culture of Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

Features the following works:

  • Khmer Arts/Studio Revolt ‘s Neang Neak
  • Svay Sareth’s Mon Boulet
  • Khvay Samnang’s Untitled
  • Khvay Samnang’s Where Is My Land?
  • Anida Yoeu Ali’s Enter the Ruins series or Buddhist Bug series

The films will be followed by a discussion led by University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Art History professors Jaimey Hamilton, Associate Professor of Art History and Critical Theory  and Paul Lavy, Associate Professor of South and Southeast Asian Art History.

Curated by Erin Gleeson, Curator and Founding Artistic Director of SA SA BASSAC in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
