Ongoing….



SaSaBassac
presents a new solo exhibition by Tith Kanitha, Instinct.   The exhibition “brings together sixteen steel wire sculptures of varying sizes and distinctive, biomorphic forms. The artist has playfully staged them as characters throughout the exhibition space in both conventional and surprising ways – they hang, drape and dangle at different levels from the ceiling and walls, and rest on or slightly off open-ended pedestals.”

Sa Sa Art Projects presents Another sound, a collaborative exhibition by Chaing Mai installation artist Arnont Nongyao and Phnom Penh sound artist Khvay Leoung. “With the language barrier between the two artists, the presented work is not only a result of their collaboration but in fact also the method of their collaboration. They attempt to achieve a mutual understanding through a sonic experimentation or rather another sound language.” Show runs until 30 March.

At Meta House, a joint exhibition of photographs of Cambodian classical dancers by Colin Grafton and Alessandro Marazzi Sassoon, a selection of images from 1973 and the present day.

At Java Independence, Anemoia: Strange Feelings from Another Place,
artworks by Nicolas C. Grey. “Anemoia – n. nostalgia for a time you’ve never known.   Imagine stepping through the frame into a sepia-tinted haze, where you could sit on the side of the road and watch the locals passing by.” Runs until 4 March.

At Chinese House, Changing Paradigms, paintings by Karen Hartmann. “Artists – quite like scientists – interpret the world in their own, special language. By processing new insights their work receives recognition and acquires significance.  And then, every so often, they change paradigms.”
More info

At Bophana Center, Cambodian Artists’ work on Forced Marriage under Khmer Rouge, works inspired by an artist talk in September, one of many activities of the Phka Sla Krom Angkar Project. Runs until 31 January.
More info

At Mirage Siem Reap, Dancers, by Colin Grafton, photographs of Cambodian classical dancers taken in 1973. “Their stories of hardship, perseverance and survival, and the renaissance of the dance, which is the spirit of Cambodia, form the core of this exhibition. Other images from the same period (1973-74) provide a backdrop to convey the feeling of the times.”
