Explosive art

A multi-themed art exhibit opens this weekend featuring photos, sculptures and other

mediums including a synchronized, marching crowd of retired prosthetic legs that

Chris Minko, the organizer, says had been walked an average of 30,000 kilometers

each before becoming a piece of art.

"It's a positive portrayal of how Cambodia has made something out of tragedy,"

says Minko, the secretary-general of the Cambodian National Vollyball League (Disabled).

The exhibit, entitled "To be Deter-mined" "At Arms length", is

the product of support from multiple sponsors from the government, diplomatic, NGO

and private sectors with the European Union Assistance on Curbing Small Arms and

Light Weapons in Cambodia (EU ASAC) as the lead donor.

Various displays high-lighting landmines, sport and disabilities and weapons destruction

will fill the too little-used Wat Phnom Exhibition Center from Aug 20 until September

30.

Works by award-winning photographer John Vink will be on display, as will the generally

eye-catching sculptures (sample at left) made from destroyed weapons that are the

result of the Peace Art Cambodia project.
