Khvay Samnang, video and performance artist, born in Svay Rieng in 1982, lives and works in Phnom Penh. In his subtle and humorous works, he uses different media to examine various aspects of Cambodian society and to pose questions about their effects and relevance today. In 2006 he completed his studies in independent art (painting) at the Royal University of Fine Arts, Phnom Penh, and shortly thereafter expanded his spectrum to include sculpture, photography, video and installations. In addition he works as a teacher at a high school in Cambodia. He has taken part in numerous group shows, such as “Human Nature: Unlike Reminder”, NIU Art Museum, 2011; “Inside”, Sa Sa Art Gallery, 2009; “Art of Survival”, Metahouse, 2008; “Surfacing and Anon”, Sala Art Space, 2007.
