Meet the artist Khvay Samnang and the curator Erin Gleeson explaining their work at the exhibition at Jeu de Paume “Rubber Man” Programmation Satellite 8, until 27 September 2015.
Khvay Samnang has a multidisciplinary practice spanning performance, photography, video and installation. Subtly and often with humour, the artist offers new interpretations of history, current controversial issues and longstanding cultural practices. Prompted by instinct and hearsay, direct experience and media sources, Khvay Samnang follows unresolved stories he believes require intervention. Employing symbolic and intentionally futile gestures, he offers new interpretations of history and contentious current affairs events that resist the polarizing language known to media and legal reports.
