Dear Art lovers,

please be invited to the
contemporary art exhibition opening of

This international exhibition project highlights Cambodian based
artists and U.S. based artists, who fuse both eastern and western
notions to maintain a distinct vision within his or her media and
series of work.

Linda Saphan, Phung Huynh, Aragna Ker, Sayon Syprasoeuth, Tom Tor,
Denise A. Scott and Thien Thach reveal a broaden viewpoint of what
truly is Global Hybrid.

Saphan’s Incognito series of ink and rice paper drawings
re-contextualize the significance of the krama for women in today’s
society, while Ker’s collages rekindles our childhood’s memories of
superheroes. Syprasoeuth’s latest videos juxtaposes traditional
Apsara dancers along with its androgynous troupe members which is set
to classical music and Dengue Fever songs. Thach’s video, Mariasia,
is a surreal depiction of a Khmer singer, who falls in love with
Mexican Mariachi music …

Also featured are new works by Cambodian painter Vann Nath and
sculptor Kong Channa.

We hope to see you tonite,
all the best, Nico Mesterharm

English rock band “The Beatles” were one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. Artist Sam Taylor-Wood tells the never seen before childhood story of singer/songwriter John Lennon. Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John. He escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n’ roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney. Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice – and an icon explodes into the world. (UK, 98mins, 2009).

When Waris Dirie’s book DESERT FLOWER appeared in 1998, the world was shocked. Director Sherry Hormann describes the autobiography of Waris, raised in a Somalian nomadic family, who was circumcised as a child, sold in marriage at 13, and fled from Africa to Europe to later become a supermodel. Now Waris Dirie is UN spokeswoman against circumcision. This is the inspiring story of an extraordinary, proud and brave women. It’s easy to forget that Dirie’s memoir is a book about someone whose success has come from posing for the camera. Indeed, it is Dirie’s remarkable lack of narcissism or entitlement that makes her so captivating a raconteur (Germany, 120mins, 2009).
