Kumnooh: Cambodia arts for week commencing 4 December, 2018

Greetings,

Thursday 6, from 6.30 pm at Cloud, the opening of a new exhibition by South African painter Marika Els, And then I lost my mind. “Her paintings and work are a synthesis of expressionism, surrealism, and whatever else she feels like experimenting with, at any given moment. She enjoys challenging herself artistically in order to find new ways to escape and express her reality. When she can’t use words, she paints.”

Also on Thursday 6, Stories of Reality, a photographic exhibition by Caroline Chevalier and le Studio Images, opens at the French Institute.   “Caroline Chevalier transforms reality into movie sets telling enigmatic stories. A theater in which reality takes on many forms, this exhibition, created in collaboration with the students of Le Studio Images, will take the wanderer into a world of dreams and mystery. The exhibit will also showcase a sound creation by David Laurent, founder of Ateliers de L’Image et du Son in Marseilles, France.” From 6.30 pm.
