The Girl from Cambodi

Looking into the lives of queer partners, Kong Dara continued his research from his artwork at Ho Chi Minh City to Taipei while he is in residence in OCAC. His residency artwork is centred around the field research on queer lives. As a gay person from Cambodia, he tried to understand partner relationships for gay and lesbian people in Taipei.

 

Kong Dara’s recent focus for his work is to continue to create a personalised Taipei City map, structuring around his own experience as a gay person from Cambodia. The project is about the relationships in the queer communities in Taipei and Cambodia. In writing to people he likes, he look into himself. He sketch out his complex experiences, emotions, and memories through pen, in order to find his personal and individual art perspective.

 

Besides making his own work, Dara also introduces his artists collective called Sa Sa Art Projects. He shares how they provide a window for the local community into contemporary art in active exchanging, sharing, and open participation events. This help the community to reimagine different possibilities of art.
