Exhibition launches at Sa Sa Bassac gallery

SA SA BASSAC gallery is celebrating the completion of a month-long residency by artist Kiong Vollak with a show titled Humanbuild. Known for his black on white architectural drawings of street scenes in Phnom Penh, Kong sticks to this theme in Humanbuild which includes several wire sculptures and charcoal drawings portraying the urban landscape of the city.  According to Pamela Nguyen Corey from the Centre of Khmer Studies, the show represents “a utopian vision with a dark side,” and reflects his belief that people who live in cities “begin to  wear the imprint of the environment on their bodies.” A member of the artists collective Stiev Selepak, Kong’s solo exhibitions have been shown at the Institut Français and the Hotel de la Paix Arts Lounge in Siem Reap.
