Screening programme Phnom Penh: Rescue Archeology The Body and the Lens in the City curated by Erin Gleeson (Artistic Director, Sa Sa Bassac, Phnom Penh, Cambodia)

Description

Phnom Penh: Rescue Archaeology, The Body and the Lens in the City, brings together single-channel video works of performance by seven artists born and living in Cambodia. In archaeological practice, a rescue archaeologist is required to react urgently, yet carefully, to a transitional moment in which there is a threat of change and irrevocable loss, aside from the archaeologist’s efforts to document. During a critical time of rapid urban, social, economic and cultural change and continuity in Phnom Penh, artists in Cambodia have been working with a sense of timeliness, inspired by or in response to memory, place, and the fluctuating urban present. Rescue Archaeology presents the selected artists and works within the framework of multiple inquiry: into nascent and overlapping practices in performance and video in Cambodia, and the relationships between these practices and their relation to the city.
