Greetings,

(Welcome to my village!), an exhibition by young Battambang artist Hour Seyha. “Sakadey is the name of an imaginary village, living removed from time, whose inhabitants and various characters (ghosts, historical figures, stone statues, cartoon characters, animals, and even creatures that combine all these forms…) tell a timeless but also contemporary tale.”
