I Want to Get Married – Drawings, Video and Performance by Srey Bandaul

I Want to Get Married Drawings, video and performance by Srey Bandaul Exhibition opening 6:30, performance at 7pm Wed 11 May, 2016 Srey Bandaul uses parody as an artistic tool to confront the complications of Cambodia’s past, identity, social values and artistic practices.  The title “I want to get married” is a metaphor for understanding each other and compromise. For Bandaul, it is a coming together of ideas and the acknowledgement of history that allows for criticality and eventually reinvention. This for Bandaul serves as a platform for him to…

Interview with Alan James Flux

Interview with Alan James Flux

Interview of Alan James Flux by Dana Langlois, curator DL: Your work in fashion photography rebels against the industry practice of using professional models, stylists and elaborate lighting to get a high-gloss finish.  Specifically you “find” your models often just by walking around Phnom Penh.  It reminds me a little of a Benetton campaign about twenty years ago that would dress models found on the streets of Sri Lanka, Jordan and other equally exotic locations. In comparison, your work seems to have a more artistic and less commercialized intent –…
