A new mixed-media exhibition "Khmer Obscura" opened at Meta House Tuesday. The exhibition showcases works by an Australian artist Stephen Eastaugh and Argentinean photographer Carolina Furque, who employ mixed-media including painting, sewing and photography in their art works. "Carolina's photographic works are rather dark, distorted temples. "Touching upon Buddhism, bombs, architecture and wines with apparent aphrodisiac qualities these two artists from very different parts of the globe attempt to confuse, amuse, obscure and focus their energy in Phnom Penh," states the exhibition brochure. The exhibition opened at Meta House on Tuesday and will run until October 30. ANITA SUREWICZ
