Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Vuth Lyno is interested in social transformation and development in Cambodia. In addition to his practice as an artist, he is a curator and artistic director of Sa Sa Art Projects, Phnom Penh’s only Cambodian artist-run space. His work is often participatory and collaborative, engaging specific Cambodian communities, and concerned with social issues and injustice. Previous works have included a photographic series reflecting on identity and memory within Cambodian LGBT communities, and a soundscape and installation inspired by the Kompong Pluk community, who live along the Tonle Sap River in Cambodia in unique stilted dwellings. Lyno is currently focused on exploring the legacy of the now demolished White Building in Phnom Penh, which was once home to a diversity of Cambodian artists, performers and craftspeople.
