Today of Yesterday

Yamamoto Gendai


Rattana Vandy, Kanitha Tith
The exhibition will mark the 8th time that the Backers Foundation and AIT have partnered on their joint residency program, presenting works by two Cambodian artists in residence, Rattana Vandy and Kanitha Tith. Vandy takes a poetic approach to interpreting fragmented memories and remnants of human existence, in turn offering an alternative perspective on history. This exhibition features his “Bomb Ponds” and “Monologue”, the latter being his latest video work, which is based on the stories of the people who lost their lives during the 1970s Khmer Rouge era.
Tith’s thin wire sculptures are delicate and powerful monuments she creates through a near-meditative process, not only as an examination of her own memories and experiences, but also a reflection on the impact of her country’s social circumstances. Here she displays a new sculptural work based on her research questioning about the relation to the interpretation of “Spirit” in Southeast Asian ritual culture.
