Towering Art Structure


Cambodian artist Sopheap Pich develops large-scale sculptures that draw on the history of his native country, daily life and own personal experiences and surroundings. His installation ‘compound’ is a construction using agricultural and craft materials found throughout Cambodia: bamboo, metal wire, plywood and rattan, developed as a response to the dramatic progress of urban development and its detrimental effects on the environment. The towering structure is situated within the foyer of the National Museum of Singapore, on show as part of the 2011 Singapore Art Biennale, drawing attention to the idea that where there is rapid progress, there is also destruction. via
