Exposition Em Satya

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

Our Books and Meta-House invite you to an exhibition of comic art by Em Satya, on November 6th, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Em Satya is an artist who has worked in nearly every field of illustration. Most foreigners have seen his cartoons as ‘Nono’ in Cambodge Soir, and many Khmer readers have enjoyed his comic adaptations of classics such as Sopaset and Sovannasam.
Now, he presents his first comic in graphic novel format, funded with the help of literary aid project VALEASE.

‘Flower of Battambang’ is a graphic novel set in Battambang and Phnom Penh, shelved when the market for local comics experienced a downturn. Nearly two decades later, Em Satya has taken up his pen and finished the story, which has been assembled into one volume.

The Exhibition will open on November 6th (original art and signed prints will be on sale).

The graphic novel (in Khmer, French and English) will premiere on November 20th.

Exposition Denis Min-Kim
> Vernissage : Jeudi 24 octobre – 18h30
> Exposition : du 25 octobre au 16 novembre
> Hall d'exposition du CCF

Tant pour une peinture abstraite que figurative, une œuvre est pour moi un
espace où des formes géométriques sont agencées dans un certain ordre. C'est
mon leitmotiv principal.
Travaillant à partir de clichés volés à la réalité, je m'attache à rendre le
détail tout aussi important que son ensemble…
Né en 1981, franco-cambodgien, Denis Min-Kim est diplômé de l'école
nationale supérieure d'art de Marseille..
