Series of Photography and Video
Woks coming in end 2019

Barrier, wall, fence, border, obstacle, panel are all hide landscapes that human create under their constructing the world they live in. Cambodian construct Cambodia. This series of working is the imagination of the combination of human made landscape and natural landscape that has been hidden, that we always know, but are not sure what it looks like. Two forms of beauty confront each other, that of a flexible nature, that of hardness with strict forms invented by man. These large metal plates could be the metaphor, in a world that is experiencing the greatest migrations in its history – for economic reasons, political, climate change – of obstacles to prevent the passage. But nothing is said, nothing is asserted, except this form that is a manner of staging the landscape and that we are forced to look right in front.
