Dinh Q. Lê - Cambodia Reamker
Tue - Sat, through Apr 29, 10:30 am - 5:30 pm
Elizabeth Leach Gallery Pearl District (Portland)
This is an in-person event
Dinh Q. Lê continues to work with themes of displacement, war, and history in Cambodia Reamker, a series of photographic weavings depicting Reamker, the national epic of Cambodia, and portraits of incarcerated people in Tuol Sleng, a notorious Khmer Rouge prison. Lê, whose family was forced to flee the Khmer Rouge in 1978, now creates "alternative narratives" that blend references to the country's rich cultural traditions and tragic recent history.
