The exhibit by Anida Yoeu Ali opened at the InterContinental Phnom Penh on 16 May 2013. And everyone rocked up for the event. Apologies for not being able to move, size or otherwise work with the photos. That is next week’s steep learning curve.

As lifted from the opening announcement, “Anida Yoeu Ali is an artist whose works span performance, installation, video, poetry, public encounters and political agitation.
She is a first generation Muslim Khmer woman born in Cambodia and raised in Chicago. After residing for over three decades outside of Cambodia, Ali returned to work in Phnom Penh as part of her 2011 Fullbright Fellowship
Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach to artmaking, her installation and performance works investigates the artistic, spiritual and political collisions of a hybrid transnational identity. From the Faroe Island to the Bronx, Copenhagen to Ho Chi Minh City, she lectures, exhibits and performs internationally. She is a collaborative partner with Studio Revolt, an independent artist run media lab in Phnom Penh, Cambodia”.
