This event has ended.

Sopheap Pich creates sculptures with organic and geometric structures, inspired by bodily organs, vegetal forms, or cityscapes. Made with local materials such as bamboo, rattan, wire, and beeswax, his work embraces a sense of lightness, yet fills up the space energetically with its volume and functional structure.
Pich’s work has been featured in numerous international museum exhibitions and biennials such as his solo exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2013 and Documenta 13. This year his work has featured in the Venice Biennale, Viva Arte Viva (running until November 26), and “Sunshower: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia 1980s to Now” at Mori Art Museum. His work is included in major collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Centre Georges Pompidou, M+ (Hong Kong), Singapore Art Museum, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
