Artist talk: Than Sok

Conjuring capital-installation


30 August, 2014




San Art Laboratory Studio
48/7 Pham Viet Chanh
Binh Thanh, HCMc



Than Sok is an artist and performer from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Fascinated by spiritual ritual, its structures and meanings, wary of how contemporary social attitude is changing understandings of what it means to ‘believe’, Than Sok will unpack his artistic practice that encompasses installation, drawing, performance, video and sculpture. He will also share his experiences of his past month residency in Ho Chi Minh City, to finally conclude his presentation with a special performance!

Sàn Art has invited Than Sok to Ho Chi Minh City for one month for ‘Prod/Ponder’ – an artist-in-residency program as part of ‘Conscious Realities’. His artwork, ’To Give is to Receive I’ is currently on view as part of the exhibition ‘Conjuring Capital’ at Sàn Art.

This event will be conducted in Khmer, Vietnamese and English – we thank you in advance for your patience with this necessary translation!
