Site visit at Kep, Cambodia as part of FIELDS: an itinerant inquiry across the Kingdom of Cambodia (2013)
"Where's beauty going to be when things get better? Memorialisation and the traumatic object"
Join Curator-in-Residence Erin Gleeson and Artist-in-Residence Luke Willis Thompson, winner of New Zealand’s acclaimed "Walters Prize" in 2014, as they tackle the topic of objects and its nature in this dynamically led discussion. Gleeson will introduce the practice of late Cambodian artist Svay Ken (1933–2008) and the significance of his paintings. Thompson will present recent projects on looking at the vexed nature of objects and their memorialisation.
