The artist will lead a course for a group of students coming from different disciplinary backgrounds. The objective is to foster their university studies with the possibility of experimenting with new reflexive formats to present scientific knowledge through an artistic, and innovative, transdisciplinary approach.
For this session, the Cambodian artist Vuth Lyno, with the assistance of four art students, is invited to work with the teachers of the university so as to set up a pedagogical and artistic project for a total period of 24 hours.
Taking the UNTAC (United Nation Transitional Authority of Cambodia) as a starting point for this TP, the artist offers the participating students to consider their own research topic through the prism of the effect produced by external forces on the journey of objects, of individuals.
Vuth Lyno (b. 1982, Phnom Penh) is an artist, curator and artistic director of Sa Sa Art Projects, Phnom Penh’s only artist-run space, located in the historic and presently endangered neighborhood known as the White Building. Vuth’s practice is primarily participatory and collaborative in nature, engaging specific Cambodian communities and the cultures unique to them. Vuth holds a Master of Art History from the State University of New York, Binghamton, supported by Fulbright fellowship.
Vuth is an artist-in-residence at Betonsalon, Paris (2016) and was a participant of International Art Residency, Para Site, Hong Kong (2015).
