Exhibition

Feeding Cambodia

Exhibiting Artists: Oeur Sokuntevy

Venue: Utterly Art 20B Mosque Street > venue details

Dates: 13 Jun 2013 - 23 Jun 2013

After nearly two decades of peace and still overwhelmingly rural, Cambodia is newly-industrializing with one of fastest population and economic growth rates in Asia. In Feeding Cambodia, Oeur Sokuntevy focuses on the state of people in Cambodia as they are right now. The exhibition portrays what is important to Cambodians, what they desire and what they are influenced by, capturing the struggle between tradition and modernity, past and future, the clash between the old generation and the young emerging with different sets of beliefs and values.

A central theme is that of sustenance, not just to fill the belly, but also of the mind, of physical comfort and particularly of the soul. Despite rapid modernization, traditional and Buddhist beliefs hold enormous sway, and Tevy’s surrealist genre dovetails well with her spiritual and supernatural scenarios. The paintings reflect Cambodia in 2013 through observation, but without judgement.
