OPENING AT THE CULTURAL CENTRE

This morning we have set up the exhibition at the cultural centre. The artists have placed the outcomes of their workshops and Vollak’s artworks, two installations and one painting, in one of the rooms designed for so, and we have set up Through Waters photo exhibit in the inner patio; Chhea’s photographs are shown in the big white wall which presides the open space.
At 17:00 we have welcomed the first visitors, mainly the participants of the workshops, who wanted to see their creations integrated in the exhibition. The members of the Yeak Loam minority have enjoyed watching their photographs hanging from the walls and they have had several conversations around them, both about personal impressions on their and others’ artworks and about the application of the photo learnings they got at the workshop with Chhea. They also paid attention to Vollak installations and to some of TW photos, but what captured their interest the most were Chhea’s photographs. Three pictures which are part of his artistic research developed in Yeak Loam Lake with members of the community.
The students from Build Bright University have also come to see the outcome of the drawing workshop they had attended to with Vollak. We could clearly feel they were proud of their creations and they have enjoyed discussing about the technical aspects of them, while commenting on the meanings that each one wanted to communicate. Some of the students were very wondering about Vollak’s installations and how to transmit the significance of water by means of non-figurative expressions. They were also interested in knowing other views on water from international artists and they have asked many questions, gathering info to satisfy their curiosity. It has been a long day, but it was worth it.
