DROPLETS OF CRE­ATIV­ITY

Southeast Asia Globe - - Incoming / Your Monthly Guide To Culture -

Phe Sophon, one of Cam­bo­dia’s most cel­e­brated sculp­tors, has un­veiled his lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion, ti­tled Water­works. Funded by the Asia Foun­da­tion and on dis­play in its Com­mu­nity Art Gallery, the new ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores hu­man­ity’s fragility and its re­la­tion­ship with the nat­u­ral world. Sophon fuses old plas­tic bot­tles to cre­ate large, wa­ter-drop struc­tures which, un­like hu­mans, are im­mor­tal. “[See­ing] this causes peo­ple to think – what are they liv­ing for? What mem­ory or legacy should they leave for the next gen­er­a­tion of peo­ple?” Sophon mused in an in­ter­view with the Ph­nom Penh Post.

When and where? Ph­nom Penh, un­til 28 June
