Anybody Anywhere, Lecture by Ashley Thompson (United Kingdom), Hiram W. Woodward Chair of Southeast Asian Art, SOAS University of London

Description

Examining what we might call a place-without-self or a self-without-place, which the Buddha figure or alter-iterations thereof embody, Ashley Thompson will discuss place with regards to (Buddhist) subjectivity and Cambodian diasporic affect. The presentation will focus on artistic performances by Amy Lee Sanford and Anida Yoeu Ali which comment on, intervene in, and shape public space in contemporary Cambodia. In the context of the symposium, these practices can be taken to probe the haunting place of arts precincts established in Phnom Penh over the course of the colonial and independence periods, their destruction and/or commodification.

Part of the Art, Urban Change, and the Public Sphere: Public Art Education Summit from 17 - 19 October 2019.
