ទីជំរក (Shelter)

Master of Fine Arts

ទីជំរក (Shelter) is a part of ជាប់ចំណង (Knotted) project. The installation consists of a fully interactive living room like space, mimicking a traditional Khmer household.  The documentary is a collaboration work with Jessica George, where we explore our confusion surrounding our individual diasporic identity and living between cultures. This documentary is a bridge between my identity as a Khmer person living here, longing to connect to Cambodia, and George, as a second-generation Indian migrant family, who is trying to navigate herself in Aotearoa New Zealand.
